What Is vetThrive?
vetThrive is a multi-layered toolbox designed for veterinary professionals for daily use to assist and enable an individual veterinary professional, veterinary team, small business, or a large veterinary organisation to take steps to thrive in the current veterinary industry environment.
With six deliberate modules or shields vetThrive provides a step-by-step introduction to help practically manage proactive wellbeing in the workplace. vetThrive is a “how to” guide for successfully introducing wellbeing into the veterinary workplace, with the ambition to develop specific measurable goals and objectives for both the individual and business.
vetThrive has been designed and tested in a clinical setting to assist and engage both the individual and the entire veterinary professional team. By joining a veterinary wellbeing collective vetThrive welcomes you to be part of a journey towards obtaining a sustainable thriving veterinary profession.
What vetThrive Is Not
vetThrive is not a mental health awareness program, counselling or support service or a place for one-on-one therapy, coaching or mentorship.
vetThrive acknowledges the many “weeds in our veterinary professions garden”, and the unique obstacles and challenges to our collective workplace wellbeing. vetThrive is an aid to building a proactive workplace wellbeing plan for both veterinary professionals as individuals and as a veterinary business.
If an individual requires professional health advice, we recommend you contact your physician or local helpline for details on how they can assist.
