As we deal with the constant uncertainty of complex emergency care, our minds frequently cycle through what-if scenarios that overshadow our peace of mind and may even consume our personal lives. The right support, at the right time, can make all the difference in keeping us resilient and allowing us to maintain our passion for emergency medicine.
The INSPIRE team has partnered with Baylor Scott and White’s peer support program, SWADDLE, in an effort to create a network of emergency medicine providers who are trained in providing confidential peer support.
Whether it be a personal crisis, medical error, malpractice suit or patient complaint, our nominated IES peers are trained in active listening and psychological first aid. All interactions are privileged and will remain confidential. Many of our peers are themselves experienced in healthcare adversity.
