This manuscript from the Canadian Patient Safety Institute provides a comprehensive overview of peer support available in Canada and internationally. It outlines best practice guidelines, tools and resources that policy makers, accreditation bodies, regulators and health care leaders can use to assess the support needs of health care workers. It also introduces the Canadian Peer Support Network, a forum for health care organizations seeking guidance in the development of their peer support programs to help providers who have experienced a patient safety incident.
