In this VETgirl online CE webinar, Bridget MacDonald, CVT, VTS (ECC) reviews patient safety in veterinary practice. This webinar is designed for veterinary professionals to be encouraged to think from a global practice perspective. By implementing positive change in our daily routine, we can have a greater impact to avoid nursing medical errors, break bad habits, and reduce the risk for a negative outcome. The focus points will be on nursing (e.g., treatment) workflow risks and how to build a safer patient culture within the practice using examples. This lecture will also review the importance of SOP writing, documenting, debriefing, teamwork, communication, and reporting to affect change.
