IMPLEMENTING PFT

O. Reports

Progress reports are important to document activities that occur in PFT programs. Particularly during the trial/adjustment period, reports are essential to keep track of unexpected occurrences. At the weekly meeting with the program coordinator and trainers, any problems can be addressed and resolved. If the matter requires the attention of the administration, it can be presented to them at their monthly meeting with the program coordinator and veterinarian. If problems are addressed quickly, the program will run more smoothly.

Annual reports can be completed to review the PFT program. They can be useful for both program planning and to set long terms goals. As well, they are also useful as a guideline if an institution is considering restructuring / modifying / expanding the program.
