UHA Launches a Provider Peer Support Program
Our Peer Support Program is designed to help you through difficult clinical events that can be some of the most challenging times in your career as a clinician. All contacts to the program and the content of your discussions is strictly confidential and is protected from legal discovery. The only data that is shared is basic statistics on program utilization. Research confirms that after an adverse event, clinicians prefer to talk to their peers. Our UHA Peer Supporters are trained and here to help.
To contact a peer supporter, either for yourself or on behalf of a colleague, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help spread the word about this new program among your colleagues.
