  • Jun, New Paid Class, 3 RACE credits Veterinary Practice Adaptation and Continuity Planning
    • A sound business strategy includes adaptation and continuity planning. And even though many veterinary practices have established business continuation or disaster preparedness and response plans, it is abundantly clear the whole team plays a critical role in understanding and adapting to such events. Required actions may come in the form of operational and protocol changes. At the same time, in the face of business interruptions, pivots may be necessary due to facility failures, natural disasters, and communicable diseases. Learn how to identify planning needs and priorities while preparing your practice to not only survive but thrive in the face of a pandemic, disaster, or emergency. Develop your plan to pivot, adapt, innovate, and carry-on as a stronger business while including your entire team in the process.
