GuardianVets and AAHA Launch New Telehealth Course

GuardianVets, the industry leader in veterinary triage, telemedicine and client communications co-created a new telehealth course with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) for their continuing education platform, AAHA Learning.

"A Better Day with Telehealth: What Virtual Care Looks Like in Veterinary Medicine," introduces learners to the concepts that make virtual care an asset, from the biggest to the smallest veterinary practice. 

According to AAHA Online Learning Programs Manager Laura Shively, MS, "GuardianVets' thorough insight, and excellent video examples left me excited about how I might be able to partner with my own cat's veterinary team for his continued care. We hope that veterinary professionals who have never seen virtual care in action leave this interactive course feeling the same way."

Through the telehealth course, learners will be able to:

  • Discuss the ways virtual care can improve veterinary practice
  • Understand the importance of VCPR in virtual care
  • Describe the differences between synchronous and asynchronous virtual care
  • Understand requirements for safety and compliance
  • Earn 1 hour of RACE-approved CE credit, applicable nationwide

"GuardianVets is passionate about creating and implementing innovative solutions designed to support veterinary professionals, along with their clients and patients," says Veterinary Medical Director Katherine Donahue DVM. "We're honored to have worked with an outstanding industry-leading organization such as AAHA."

GuardianVets and AAHA are proud to offer the telehealth course for free, to both members and nonmembers alike, to help all veterinary professionals.
