In this week's episode of Skill Set I am joined by Dr. Lo Curtis to discuss the storytelling skills you can use when dealing with your neurology cases. However... Rather early on in the episode Lo and I decided we wanted to spend a bit more time talking on a topic that we are both very passionate about. We start by addressing the challenges of establishing compliance from our clients. Lo states it beautifully that "most of the time, a lack of compliance comes from a lack of understanding and not for a lack of trying." Meaning that it's not usually the "fault" of the client when a treatment pla ..read more

This week's episode was a special request after a recent conversation with an incredible up and coming veterinary student. While not an immediate reaction to recent saddening events within the profession this is a topic we need to talk about more. Within vet schools there has been recent push to encourage students to prioritize wellbeing. While this is positive, it is always met with the disparity to what vet students are actually experiencing. They say "eat well. Take time for yourselves. Get enough sleep." but don't provide a practical pathway for students to integrate this into their daily ..read more

This is an episode that has been months if not years in the making as I am unashamedly a huge nerd when it comes to James Herriot and his books. When I first heard they were remaking the tv show, All Creatures Great and Small I could hardly contain my excitement!
