The Peer Support Program connects health care professionals with trained peer support volunteers after adverse patient events or events with serious unanticipated patient outcomes. 

If health care professionals are experiencing caregiver event related trauma and would like peer support, they should contact the Integrated Emotional Support Program Coordinator.  The coordinator will in turn contact a peer support volunteer to meet with the individual and provide one to one trained support.

This service is open to all health care professionals involved in patient care including, but not limited to, physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, techs, and therapists. 

Contacting the Peer Support Program

If you are interested in peer support, please contact Jenny Tauber, the Integrated Emotional Support Coordinator, by phone, pager or email.  The coordinator will arrange for a trained peer support volunteer to contact you.
