Feline-Friendly Handling Virtual Workshop
This virtual workshop will consist of two video chat discussion forums, providing the opportunity for the attendee to be at work or home. Dates and times TBD.
Part 1: Prior to the session, registrants will be asked to submit information based on specifics within their practice. The 2 hour live video chat will begin with a short summary presentation on unique feline behaviors. Following the presentation, Dr. Rodan will discuss details and provide recommendations for the registrants’ individual situations and circumstances. Dr. Rodan will then demonstrate feline handling techniques. It is recommended that attendees have a cat available in which to apply those techniques as they are being discussed. Demonstrations will include ways to reduce stress and fear, minimal and effective handling techniques, and other methods for various veterinary visit scenarios. The registrants will be provided with homework in order to begin to implement what was learned into daily practice.
Part 2: It is common for there to be excitement about what was learned in Part 1, but going back and implementing it in daily practice may be difficult or overwhelming. Prior to the session, registrants will be asked to submit information on their progress, photos/video, difficulties, and questions. The 1 ½ hour live video chat will include a discussion forum with Dr. Rodan to explore creative solutions
and offer alternatives and guidance, as well as set a plan for successful implementation in your practice. Note: As this is a two-part interactive session, we will be offering two classes and each is limited to 10 registrants. We hope to offer more in the future. AAFP 2020 Virtual Conference attendees will have the first opportunity to register. Make sure you register online early in order to participate in the workshop. Attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Video Chat Discussion Forums
The AAFP will be offering Video Chat Discussion Forums on Saturday, October 24. These are interactive video chat discussions on specific feline topics with a small group of colleagues hosted by our partners and expert speakers. Pre-registration is required to participate as each topic is limited to 15 participants. However, registration for these forums will not be available until mid-August. NOTE: registered attendees will have the first opportunity to sign up and will receive an email when this becomes available.
Conference Code of Conduct
The AAFP is dedicated to providing a safe and productive environment for everyone attending our events, as reflected in the AAFP Core Values. We believe that a community where individuals feel uncomfortable or threatened is neither healthy nor productive. Therefore, the AAFP prohibits intimidating, threatening, or harassing conduct during our conferences. This policy applies to attendees, speakers, staff, volunteers, exhibitors, and guests. Conference participants violating these rules may be reprimanded or expelled from the conference, at the discretion of AAFP leadership.
Harassment of conference participants will not be tolerated in any form. Harassment includes offensive gestures or verbal comments, inappropriate or intimidating behavior and language, unwelcome jokes or comments, stalking, offensive images, photography without permission, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant or exhibitor engages in harassing behavior, AAFP leadership may take any action they deem appropriate, ranging from a simple warning to the offender to expulsion from this and future conferences. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact AAFP staff who will work with appropriate AAFP leadership to resolve the situation.
We value your attendance and want to make your experience as productive and professionally stimulating as possible.
