Research: Occupational experiences of loss


How occupational experiences of loss impact upon the professional and personal lives of veterinarians

My name is Sally Grimson and I am undertaking a research project as part of the Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) Honours degree at Charles Sturt University, under the supervision of Dr Rachel Hogg.

You are invited to participate in a research study investigating how occupational death impacts on the professional and personal lives of veterinarians. Participation is open to practicing veterinarians (employed either part-time or full-time) in Australia.

Participation involves participating in a semi-structured interview about your work and personal experiences as a veterinarian, and how these are impacted by your occupational experiences of death.

The interview will include some general questions about your work as a veterinarian, as well as some more specific questions about your experience of euthanasia, death, and grief at work.

Interviews can take place in person for veterinarians working in practices in the Wagga Wagga area, or over the phone or via video conference for those outside of the Riverina region. Interviews should take approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
