UF – Care for Colleagues

Caring for our own.

The Care for Colleagues program provides support for our health care workers after difficult events. Situations can include traumatic clinical events, the death of a patient or any other events that are emotionally challenging. Supporting peers are trained to provide crisis intervention, team briefings and mentoring. A member of the Care team is available to employees who need support and guidance while experiencing a normal reaction to a stressful event or outcome, also called a “second victim”. There is no cost to use this program.
