Webinar: Animal Depopulation Resiliency Check-in Tool
July 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 08:00 am
Summary: Animal depopulation is associated with distressing psychological impacts on people. These impacts affect many stakeholders including veterinarians, producers, public health officials, and others who make decisions about and carry out depopulation. The Animal Depopulation Resiliency Check-in Tool (ADRCT) is a five-question public health protocol for stakeholders who are preparing for, participating in, and recovering from animal depopulation.
ADRCT questions have been developed in veterinary clinical environments over the last 20 years. Over the last 3 years, through USDA APHIS National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program funding awarded to the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, the tool has been reviewed by experts in human traumatology and data collected from depopulation stakeholders. This webinar will review the tool including how to use it and preliminary feedback about the tool gathered thus far.
Intended Audience: Veterinarians, physicians, nurses, Extension staff, agricultural safety, and health professionals, farm managers, farm workers, and anyone else who may be involved with a depopulation event in their community.
Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to…
- Understand the prevalence of trauma-related symptoms after potentially traumatic events
- Describe the human stressors of animal depopulation
- Know the five questions in the Animal Depopulation Resiliency Check-in Tool
- Be able to apply the Animal Depopulation Resiliency Check-in Tool safely
- Understand the resiliency flexibility sequence
