CFP Self-Assessment for Veterinary Practices

A practice checklist guides your practice by allowing you to self-assess and incorporate essential criteria by using the educational resources provided. Many of the techniques contained in the practice checklist are readily achievable because they focus on approach and organization. The program does not require remodeling of your practice, but provides creative solutions for you to help decrease stress during feline-care visits. The most important step is to recognize that there is a need to make these adaptations in order to provide a higher quality of care to cats.

As your practice goes through the assessment process, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Evaluate processes, environment, and the care provided to feline patients.
  • Examine your practice environment and equipment from the perspective of the specific needs of cats.
  • Assess and implement practice skills, training, and education.
  • Understand the importance of becoming recognized as a Cat Friendly Practice®.
