The Peer Support Team model provides structured peer-based support services for healthcare providers after an adverse event. It was developed and implemented at Brigham and Women's Hospital. By having this model in place, healthcare providers can avoid pursuing more formal forms of support services through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or mental health services.
