About the course:

Behaviour patients may suffer relapses. Many clients and clinicians are not prepared for when a stable behaviour patient starts to regress in their behaviour. Relapses happen because mental health problems are a chronic condition occurring in a complex organ system. Relapses may happen with life changes but may also occur due to medication becoming ineffective or the condition changing. Clients are often frustrated by relapses and need to understand that they are possible and can be navigated.

Managing a patient may involve just tweaking doses of medications but sometimes bigger changes are needed. Deciding what to do and when may be the difference between a small blip and a patient suffering a crippling relapse. This webinar will discuss why relapses occur, strategies for management and helping clients help their pets through these.

Suitable for:

  • Veterinarians
  • Veterinary nurses
