Broadening the Reach of Staff Support: Promoting Staff Resilience in Stressful Situations

The RISE (Resilience in Stressful Events) Team was developed in a 1000-bed hospital to offer timely, non-judgmental support to staff who have experienced physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual distress in the wake of an unexpected patient-related event. This webinar will illustrate interdisciplinary collaboration which began with a “good idea” and then developed into a 24/7 peer support program, including standardized, consistent training for peer responders. Strategies will be offered for the professional chaplain who assesses need for this type staff support in their own setting.
