Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
A new approach to veterinary training, On the Floor @Dove, now offers free trials to its website, giving any veterinary professional in the world instant access to engaging training videos and tools for seven days.
“On the Floor @Dove is incredibly informative and truly beneficial to my staff,” says Brendan DeSmet, Hospital Administrator of Acacia Animal Hospital in Tucson, Arizona. “Everyone was extremely excited about the newest posted videos on rabbit neuters and bird handling.”
Unlike traditional digital training programs, On the Floor @Dove is unscripted and features real cases handled by practicing veterinary professionals at DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital in Portland, Oregon. The fast-growing digital training product was created only one short year ago by DoveLewis, which treats more than 12,000 patients every year. Now with thousands of users across the world, On the Floor @Dove is poised to be a leading source of modern training for veterinarians, technicians, practice managers, receptionists, assistants and even students.
“Our goal is to improve access to the kind of training that veterinary professionals need and want. Other companies have missed the mark in terms of creating interesting and informative training,” says Ron Morgan, DoveLewis CEO. “We provide a better alternative that’s affordable for small clinics in rural locations as well as large practices with multiple locations in urban settings. Instructors are also finding that On the Floor @Dove brings classroom concepts to life for students.”
Every risk-free trial provides full access to On the Floor @Dove for veterinary teams and practices of all sizes. Preventive care, hospital standards, communication skills, dentistry, instrument care, specimen collection, radiology, anesthesia, pharmacology, medical math, and management techniques are just some of the training topics covered at http://www.atdove.org. The most popular training video, titled Fractious Cat Restraint, has more than 6,800 views. On the Floor @Dove adds new training content weekly, which keeps topics fresh and relevant to both new and long-term users of the website. In addition to complimentary trials, the site offers flexible payment plans, including monthly and annual billing options, to make year-round training affordable for all practices and individuals.
“On the Floor @Dove is an in‐depth and comprehensive resource that helps us to add one more layer of training for staff—and it’s a good refresher for the rest of us!” says Dr. Jolene Head, owner of Keauhou Veterinary Hospital in Kailua Kona, Hawaii.
RACE-approved continuing education (CE) lectures, articles, and blogs are also included as part of the On the Floor @Dove online training experience. Assignments, quizzes and other training tools make it easy to track the training progress of individual team members. Downloadable articles and procedure checklists are available for those who like to have hard copies to reference and for instructors in need of classroom handouts.
“I’ve worked as an instructor for nearly 20 years, and I’ve never come across anything like On the Floor @Dove before,” says Instructor Kathy DePaolo, RVT, of Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California. “It is truly invaluable to me as an instructor and it’s so important for students to see these videos.”
On the Floor @Dove prides itself on being responsive by accepting content requests from its users—a special perk that’s actively utilized by practices with specific and sometimes unusual training needs.
“We’re committed to listening to our users and empowering them to expand their skill sets and increase their confidence on the job,” says Megan Brashear, On the Floor @Dove Education Manager, CVT, VTS (ECC). “We partly look to them to tell us what they want to learn, whether that’s how to handle confrontational clients, prepare IV fluids or give blood transfusions.”
