The compassion understood course has been designed to help practices handle euthanasia and end-of-life care compassionately and sensitively, offering a bond centered approach.  For pet owners, losing their pet is a devastating time and one that will stay with them long after the appointment.  We know through our research that 20% of clients do not return to the same practice following euthanasia of their pet. We can change this by improving the experience that we offer clients during this difficult and sad time.  Even making small changes to the way in which we approach bereaved clients and handle euthanasia’s can have a big and lasting impact on the client and the way in which they process their grief.

During the course, guidance on how to approach end-of-life discussions and protocols on veterinary procedures are discussed, to ensure that when the time comes it is as dignified and smooth as possible. Information on how to handle bereaved clients and the stages of grief are also considered along with team well-being and compassion fatigue. By the end of the course, your practice team will feel confident discussing end-of-life care ahead of the ‘final’ appointment - giving clients time to think clearly about this important decision.

The Compassion Understood training course also accounts for 7.5 CPD hours, with each member of the team receiving an individual certificate following completion. The training is conducted via an online portal, which makes it easy to fit the course around a busy schedule.  It is important to remember that the client’s journey begins way before the ‘put to sleep’. This is why it is essential that the whole team immerse themselves in this training course and not just the vets who administer that final injection!
