Being part of a peer consultation team offers many benefits, including:
- Exchange of ideas between colleagues.
- Access to peer support.
- Expanding awareness of personal and professional issues that arise.
- Support in managing ethical dilemmas.
It also contributes to self-care and can be a protective measure against possible personal/professional distress by having colleagues who look out for one another.
