Wellbeing Assessment for Veterinarians
Published on: Feb 7, 2023
Professional quality of life is how you feel in relation to your work as a helper.
A veterinarian is someone who helps patients and their owners. Both the positive and negative aspects of helping others influence your professional quality of life. The ProQOL assessment measures compassion satisfaction (the positive) as well as compassion fatigue (the negative) to provide a starting point for introspection about yourself and your environment. In turn, this can help you identify areas to focus your self-care.
The tool can help you measure how you are being affected in three areas that are critical to mental wellbeing – compassion satisfaction, compassion stress, and compassion fatigue – and may help you identify areas where you want to focus your self-care.
