Peer Support

The Intensive Care Society is working with 
Professor Richard Williams and Verity Kemp to develop a policy, strategic framework and model of care for the Society to enable it to develop and deliver its own programme of peer support. Peer support offers a systematic, strategic approach to intervening to sustain staff who are coping well and to provide initial support those who are struggling. You can read more about these principles in the 'peer support' and 'a quick guide to peer support' summaries released by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Royal College of Physicians of London .

We are currently working on the model, and will be working with pilot sites to refine the Society's approach.
