The Veterinary Sciences and Healthcare Worker Training and Needs Assessment project is sponsered by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH/CDC/DHHS) through the Mountain Plains Education and Research Center.
The aim is to assess the occupational exposures and training needs of workers in veterinary sciences, animal healthcare, and other animal care settings. If successful, this project will inform the development of training for workers in these fields. the project team consists of professionals from the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus with backgrounds in occupational safety, veterinary sciences, training development, communications, and public health. It is the goal of the project team to develop training that addresses the specific occupational safety needs (with strongest emphasis in chemical exposure control) of veterinary workers and in a delivery form appropriate to the learning style of the this working community. That is why input from this working community is critical to the success of the project.
The methods employed to conduct the needs assessment phase of this project include an online survey, interviews, and focus groups. If you are engaged in veterinary healthcare delivery, animal husbandry/care, or related veterinary occupation, we want to hear from you.
