|Burnout||Behavioral: Peer Resilience Champion Behavioral: Enriched Survey Feedback||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||882 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Crossover Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||
Hospital staff will receive support from Peer Resilience Champions, whose activities will, in part, be modelled on the role that psychiatrists acting as support coaches have played in during the acute phase of the pandemic. These include support, identification of needs, education, advocacy and resource navigation. In doing so, they follow evidence-based principles and guidelines.
A randomized cluster stepped wedge design will be used, with five clusters of clinical units and departments constructed in order to approximate the following goals: similar number of staff, comparable COVID-19 exposure, similar mix of staff by discipline and gender, number of clusters small enough to allow for the PRC intervention to be provided with at least six months of implementation within the two-year study after cross-over occurs. (Two arms).
The Enriched survey intervention will be a randomized controlled trial design with equal allocation (1:1) to both the express and enriched surveys. (Two arms).

Experimental: Peer Resilience Champion Support
The clusters that receive this intervention will receive support from a Peer Resilience Champion.
Behavioral: Peer Resilience Champion
PRC is supplied to everyone and provides support to hospital staff during the COVID-19 pandemic in a stepped-wedge design.
No Intervention: No Peer Resilience Champion Support
The clusters in this arm of the study will not receive the Peer Resilience Champion support until they cross-over into the Peer Resilience Champion support arm.
Experimental: Enriched Feedback
This arm of the study encompasses individuals who will receive feedback from the survey that will hopefully help provoke self-reflection.
Behavioral: Enriched Survey Feedback
This intervention provides feedback based on answers to questionnaires to those in the Enriched Feedback arm of the study.
No Intervention: Express Feedback
This arm of the study encompasses individuals who will not receive feedback from the survey.
