Using Care Pathways to Manage Your Shelter Behavior Program - webcast
Recorded On: 08/31/2022
Presenter: Dr. Sheila Segurson, Director of Outreach and Research for Maddie's Fund®
Care Pathways are standardized plans for animals that have the same type of condition. They allow for individualized support while ensuring efficient, effective care for animals with that condition. They’re commonly used for improving animals’ paths through the shelter system, as well as managing medical conditions. During this presentation, we’ll talk about care pathways regarding behavior and how we can utilize them to improve our shelter behavior programs.

As Director of Outreach and Research for Maddie's Fund®, Dr. Sheila Segurson's goal is to develop and support research that increases pet adoptions from rescue groups and shelters and improves pet well-being. She relies upon her background working in and with animal shelters, pet foster care programs, and veterinary medicine to lead Maddie's Fund research efforts.
After graduating from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Segurson worked as a general practice/emergency/shelter veterinarian at pet hospitals in California. Then, in 2005, Sheila graduated from Maddie's Shelter Medicine Program at UC Davis, becoming the first in the nation to complete a three-year, post-graduate behavior specialty training program with an emphasis on shelter animals and shelter behavior programs. She worked for several pet welfare organizations, including UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program, The Sacramento SPCA, and the Animal Rescue League of Boston, where she developed and implemented enrichment/behavior modification programs.
