Ethical Dilemmas in Companion Animal Veterinary Medicine: Mental Health Implications

mai 4, 2021

Participants are being sought to take part in a research study conducted by Bronwyn Dickson, PhD (candidate) from the Faculty of Social Work, Wilfrid Laurier University. This study has been approved by Wilfrid Laurier University’s Research Ethics Board (6831).
 
This study is directed at companion animal veterinarians who have been practicing for at least three years and are currently practicing in Canada.
 
The purpose of this study is to understand how companion animal veterinarians perceive and experience ethical dilemmas in practice. Acquiring knowledge about morally distressing events in veterinary practice, the psychological impact on veterinarians, and the strategies that veterinarians use to cope with ethical challenges will help inform mental health services, veterinary practice, and academic curriculum.
 
Participants in this study will meet with the researcher virtually (Zoom) at an agreed-upon time to answer questions about ethical dilemmas in veterinary practice. The interview will last approximately 60-90 minutes and will be audio recorded. 
 
If you would like to learn more about the study or volunteer to participate, please contact the researcher, Bronwyn Dickson, PhD (candidate), at bron0234@mylaurier.ca.
