What do I need to instruct my client I’m referring?


Presented by Michael Blackwell, DVM, MPH, and Susan Krebsbach, DVM

8 pm ET/5 pm PT, Wednesday, June 12, 2019

This webinar is approved for 1.5 hours of RACE CE credits. Registration is FREE for HSVMA members.

Lack of access to veterinary care is a complex societal problem with multiple causes but it is primarily associated with low socioeconomic status. Millions of pets do not receive adequate veterinary care because the costs are beyond the family’s ability to pay, making lack of access to veterinary care the most significant animal welfare crisis affecting owned pets in the United States.

During this webinar, Dr. Blackwell and Dr. Krebsbach will share the results of a national study of barriers to veterinary care that pet owners face. They will discuss what veterinarians know about the problem and their attitudes and practices regarding it. They will also introduce the concept of aligning human social service providers with veterinary service providers to better support families.

The learning objectives are:

Understanding the scope of barriers to veterinary care faced by pet owners, veterinarian’s knowledge, attitude, and practices about access to veterinary care, and recommendations to address it as presented in the Access to Veterinary Care Coalition’s seminal report.

Awareness of AlignCare™, a research and development project of One Health and funded by Maddie’s Fund®, as a possible means to alleviating the stress of not being able to provide veterinary care for your pet.
We hope you will join us for this important discussion
