How To Run Weight Management Clinics
Date: Monday 3rd February, 2020 - Monday 10th February, 2020
Start time: 9:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Many practices run a weight management programme as one of their core nurse-led clinics, but are we getting enough clients on board, and more importantly, are we helping clients to achieve successful and sustainable weight loss in their pets?Pet obesity is on the increase, and figures show that 45% of dogs and 40% of cats are considered to be overweight by vets (1), and over 60% of vets say that obesity is the biggest health and welfare concern for UK pets (2).We know that as vet professionals its our responsibility to guide pet owners towards a healthier outcome through weight loss, and to maintain that lifestyle for their pet. We also know how difficult it can be to gain client interest and commitment to weight clinics, to achieve high compliance and customer satisfaction, and to reach target weights for pets and prevent relapse.It is so important that we have a clear strategy for targeting and supporting clients of overweight pets, by providing a well-thought out and delivered weight clinics service. Let us help you to achieve that.There are lots of courses that can teach you about the nutritional aspects of obesity and weight loss, but this course is a little different. We will assist you with the organisation, planning and processes side of running weight clinics, and from your studies on the course you will be able to set up a clear and easy-to-follow practice plan incorporating the key components for a successful, professional weight management programme. This will include clinic structure, pricing, dealing with difficult cases, essential equipment, effective communication to achieve client motivation, promoting the programme, and creating supporting materials.
Who is it for?
Vet nurses, students and vets. This workshop is suitable for those already running weight clinics and those wanting to improve existing clinics. Practice managers and partners who want to drive some new ideas into clinics will also benefit.
