Free tools streamline preventive healthcare guidelines implementation
Implementation of any program successfully demands a strategic process, and that includes when launching preventive healthcare guidelines. And there’s no need to recreate the wheel. In fact, some free, online tools will make your job a whole lot easier.
Partners for Healthy Pets (PHP), an alliance of 100+ veterinary associations, veterinary colleges, and animal health companies focused on preventive care led by AAHA and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), has developed a logical process, and tools, specifically for successfully implementing preventive healthcare guidelines.
To kick-start your implementation process, staff can view a free video by Andy Roark, DVM, who will share how his experiences led him to think differently about preventive care.
Next, you can lead your staff through a step-by-step implementation process using the following tools:
- A six-session meeting guide, with agendas for each 45-minute session, provides talking points and staff activities to be done both during and after sessions.
- A customizable PowerPoint will help guide discussions during the meetings and act as “takeaways” for staff.
- A Practice Action Plan in the form of a “fill in the blanks” workbook will enable your practice to identify its preventive healthcare goals, roles and responsibilities, and strengths and opportunities.
Implementation of preventive healthcare guidelines doesn’t have to be difficult, and once you download these free, online tools, you’ll see why.
