Videos from the day – Student Veterinary Nursing Wellbeing Discussion Forum 2021

On 3 November 2021, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Mind Matters Initiative (MMI) hosted a virtual Student Veterinary Nursing Wellbeing Discussion Forum in collaboration with VN Futures. The event was created following the results of an MMI wellbeing survey of 650 newly qualified and student veterinary nurses, and clinical coaches, which indicated that there were 5 key areas impacting the mental health and wellbeing of this particular group. The day consisted of 5 short talks on each of these areas, recordings of which can be accessed below. Delegates were then split into breakout rooms to discuss the content of each of the talks and to explore the ways in which these issues could be addressed in the professions.

Full reports on both the survey and the findings of the discussion forum are due to be published in the coming weeks and will be used to inform the future work of MMI in this area.
