Wed May 12/21 Anesthesia
Wed, May 12, 2021
 
Agenda: Overcoming the challenges in everyday small animal anesthesia practice!

The complexity and demands of anesthetic management in practice is steadily increasing and it can be challenging to keep pace.  New anesthetic drugs, equipment and techniques are emerging at a rapid rate and advances in dentistry and other interventional therapies result in longer anesthetics being performed on sicker patients.  This session aims to clarify and enhance understanding of how to optimize anesthetic management by tackling common myths and misconceptions surrounding topics such as: drug selection & administration, fluids, monitoring targets, post-operative analgesia, and equipment problems.

Sun May 16/21 Telemedicine, Branding & Social Media (Day 1 of 2)
Sun, May 16, 2021
 
Agenda:

The 2021 Trifecta: How virtual care, brand messaging, and mastery of the bad review set you up right for the new year!


DAY 1 of 2


Pain free Virtual Care- Fact vs Fiction
In this lecture, we will explore the top objections practitioners have regarding telemedicine. Whether it’s concern about the legality of remote VCPRs, the worry that telemedicine will reduce the standard of care, or feeling like clients won’t want to pay for your time, we now know how tens of thousands of pets have been successfully managed with virtual care. 

The Virtual Vet: A Step-By-Step Plan for Launching Telemedicine in Your Clinic
Telemedicine isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to implement a new service. In this lecture, we’ll go step by step through the implementation process, from selecting a provider to determining how the staff will participate in the workflow, to set both your staff and your patients up for success. Whether you’re dipping your toes or going all in, we’ll also explore different models being used to help determine what offerings are right for your practice.


The irresistible Magic of Storytelling
In a time where everyone is flustered, worn out, and just burned out, sometimes we need a reminder of why we joined the field in the first place. In this hour we re-evaluate veterinary medicine through the lens of a storyteller, understanding how we can position ourselves in the age of the internet and COVID moving forward to be the heroes we always knew we were.

The 2021 Trifecta: How virtual care, brand messaging, and mastery of the bad review set you up right for the new year!

DAY 2 of 2


The One Hour Marketing Makeover
Branding and marketing have always been critical keys to success, but in today’s world it’s more important than ever. In this hour we review the messaging clients are looking for when they go to your website and social media, and a quick audit to assess the state of your marketing. (This lecture can also be used for live critiques if attendees submit their websites ahead of time)

The Seven Types of Bad Reviews
Bad reviews on social media are frustrating, disheartening, and demoralizing. Know what else they are? Predictable. In this lecture we go through the main categories of bad reviews, the best ways to respond to each, and a tried and true method for responding to any kind of review in a way that’s straightforward and minimizes the impact on the team.

Are You Crisis Ready?
Social media firestorms are one of the scariest experiences a clinic can go through, but it’s one few are prepared for. If you wait until the pitchforks arrive, it’s too late. The best way to manage a crisis is to anticipate and prevent it, but if one hits there are still protocols every clinic should have in place to defend and de-escalate against a media crisis, whether it comes from social media or traditional media. In this lecture, we’ll discuss prevention, preparation, and mitigation strategies.
