6.3.2020 PRIMA Certification: The Pain, Rehabilitation, and Integrative Medicine Advantage™
Did you ever ask yourself, “Why did I choose this profession?” Depression, burnout, and anxiety are on the rise in healthcare practitioners. Concerns about mounting student debt, increased competition from other clinics, the high cost of medical equipment and technology, and the pressure of working with clients that are unable or unwilling to pay for veterinary care stand out as key factors in the toll that being a veterinarian takes on an individual. In comparison, which factors promote wellbeing? Who can argue with working at a more comfortable pace, owning one’s practice, earning more, exercising regularly, tending to personal relationships, and being the type of veterinarian that we always hoped we would be? We need more than BAND-AIDS. We need structural change. HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS.You have options. Lots of options. You may not have felt (or feel) powerful enough as a veterinary student to make change. Now that you are, or almost are, a veterinarian, you can practice medicine up to your standards, no longer silenced. You can choose your place of work based on the ethics of the company, or build your own team and practice independently. You can join a group or stay solo as a mobile veterinarian. Most of all, you can decide if, when, and to whom to refer for further work-ups, safeguarding your patients and clients against painful, needless, traumatic surgery. You are able to advocate for forward-thinking pain management, rehabilitation, and integrative medicine early in disease development and soon after surgery in order to avert long-term disability. And, the evidence backs you up. With research mounting in medical acupuncture, massage, botanical medicine, physical medicine, and light-based therapies, you stand on strong footing when you advocate for change. You are a leader in the advancement of veterinary medicine. In this webinar, Narda G. Robinson, DO, DVM, MS, FAAMA outlines the 10 steps you can take, beginning today, to become a certified PRIMA veterinarian through CuraCore® VET.
