Modern Euthanasia: The good death revolution (for Nurses)
Euthanasia is going through an evolution. It is changing for the better; techniques, protocols, pricing, and attitudes. Patients deserve the best, clients demand the best, and our veterinary teams want to deliver it. We will explore new trends in hospital euthanasia experiences, reinforce those oldie but goodie protocols, and even dive into the new concept of dysthanasia. Led by Dr. Kathleen Cooney, founder and director of education for the Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy, this webinar will become the spark to modernize your euthanasia appointments.
