The Warrior Vet
Burnout is recognised as a break between what people are and what they have to do, and it is typically experienced as emotional exhaustion or depersonalization. So how do we recognise the early warning signs of burnout in ourselves & colleagues? The effect of burnout is widespread. The impact of increasing workload, a perceived lack of control, client incivility and job insecurity all contribute to high turnover, reduced productivity, and poor mental health in the veterinary industry. There are many early predictors, indicators, and manifestations of stress that contribute to burnout. Once we can spot early predictors and signs of burnout, we can take action. Appropriate action. Burnout's impact can be considerable and costly to both individuals and the practice overall.This applies to the whole Veterinary Team.
