RISE: Resilience in Stressful Events

RISE: Resilience in Stressful Events, an emotional peer support structure, supports second victims who were emotionally impacted by a stressful patient-related event or unanticipated adverse event. This RISE team is composed of a multidisciplinary peer responder team who has volunteered to support second victims when an unanticipated patient-related event occurs. Support from RISE is available to “second victims” or health care providers having difficulty coping with their emotions after patients’ adverse events and who subsequently have difficulty coping with their emotions.
