Civility – The Facts (An introduction to the importance of civility in practice)

Personal Development | 50 mins

In this webinar, we will explore the core concepts of incivility and consider the impact of inter-team behaviour on individuals, teams, organisations, and the safe delivery of patient care. Based upon VetLed’s collaboration with a pioneering initiative within the NHS, we will explore how, quite literally, civility saves lives. We will consider what makes a great workplace and explore how the individuals, teams and veterinary practices can implement a range of evidence-based strategies proven to reduce incivility.
