This AHRQ-funded study surveyed risk managers about programs that provide support for clinicians involved in adverse events, who are often referred to as second victims. Approximately three-quarters of organizations reported having a support program, but they varied widely in structure and staffing. Many of the programs lacked elements recommended by national standards, suggesting significant room for improvement.
