Building A Clinician Peer Support Program is “roll up your sleeves” seminar conducted by Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS), and hosted by IHI, participants will learn methods to support their peers after an adverse event. Taking place July 15-16 in Cambridge, MA, this seminar will feature expert faculty who will engage and instruct participants so that by the close of the program each individual and team will return to their organization with the knowledge, skills, and techniques necessary to support and train their peers in this crucial endeavor.
