Alexander Den Heijer once said, “When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower,” and the same is true for veterinary teams in managing burnout.
Where emotional exhaustion, disengagement, and other symptoms of burnout have increased for veterinary team members, the root lies in environmental issues. Like plants without water or sun, veterinary workers (and thereby practices as a whole) cannot thrive or indeed survive without the necessary resources and support to do their jobs.
