So, what are we talking about today?

“Resilience is the ability to withstand, bounce back from and even pre-empt stressful situations," noted Moga. 

And we all know that veterinary medicine provides stress in many forms.

Moga served as the founding director of Veterinary Social Services at the University of Minnesota’s Veterinary Medical Center (2004-2012), as well as the founder of Family & Community Services at North Carolina State University’s Veterinary Hospital (2012-2018), where she created the first known veterinary clinical ethics consultation committee. She is now in private practice in Southeast Virginia, where she provides practice consultation and education to veterinary providers, as well as maintains a clinical practice specializing in grief and loss, chronic stress, burnout, and human-animal relationships. She provides training for social services, veterinary medical, and animal welfare workers across the country.

Here are a couple of quotes from the article "What Resilient Practitioners Know and Do" that was published in the winter 2020 issue of EquiManagement magazine.

“Compassion fatigue, burnout and moral distress are common complaints in veterinary medicine.” 

And...

“We are learning more every day about the individual behaviors that can buffer stress and produce resilience, even in the most challenging environments.”

Topics covered in this podcast include:

  • self-care—hydration, nourishment and movement
  • press pause
  • think positively
  • make time for connections
