Creating a CLEAR blueprint to inspire a mentally healthy culture within the veterinary profession; energizing compassionate transformation of workplaces with actionable resources.
“Transformation, is defined as a dramatic change in appearance. With veterinary teams overworked and stressed out, shortages in critical staff positions, and heightened levels of conflict within veterinary facilities, transformation is crucial in veterinary medicine. ” Dr. Jim Lowe, DVM, CLEAR Blueprint Co-Chair
CLEAR Blueprint is a practice certification created and administered by NOMV and powered by funder, Merck Animal Health. The program was developed by an interdisciplinary team of veterinary professionals, mental health professionals, and legal and business experts. Our mission is to provide a CLEAR Blueprint to inspire a mentally healthy culture within the veterinary profession; energizing compassionate transformation of workplaces with actionable resources. The program is scalable and applicable to any workplace in the veterinary field.
Domains include aligning practice with a succinct mission statement, fostering brave leadership throughout the workforce, integrating healthy ways to manage workplace conflict, helping staff learn stress management and emotional balance tools, and designing clinic-client protocols for positive engagement.
CLEAR Blueprint is a scalable, adaptable program that provides personalized support from staff and interns. As the program grows, we need to be able to sustain its future and build the capacity to bring it to every clinic who wants a healthy workplace. Beginning Oct 1, 2022 clinics will be asked to contribute to the program financially. Because NOMV is a nonprofit organization, these fees will all go back into the program to sustain it.
Any clinic who signed up for the CLEAR Queue prior to October 1 is not required to contribute regardless of when they start their program, however, we always welcome additional contributions.
