Committee Purpose
The Peer Assistance Advisors Committee provides advocacy and advice to the association members and the public on issues regarding practitioner well-being as it pertains to nurse anesthetists’ and students’ risk for drug use, abuse, dependency, and addiction. The work is committed to educational endeavors and aggressive promotion of prevention modalities; committee members offer confidential assistance, informational support, and referral resources in the formulation of guidelines for early recognition, intervention, treatment, long-term recovery, and appropriate re-entry. The advisors respond to helpline calls (800-654-5167) and lead the Peer Assistance Support Network comprised of State Peer Advisors, who are appointed by each state association, and provide a wealth of online resources at www.AANAPeerAssistance.com. The Peer Assistance Advisors Committee is an ad hoc subcommittee of the Health & Wellness (H&W) Committee. To foster solidarity of the mission and collaborative work integrated into the AANA structure, the H&W committee has oversight of the Peer Assistance Support Network.
