PCS Diversity Program
The PCS Diversity Program is dedicated to developing short- and long-range strategies to support workforce diversification within PCS as a means to best serve the hospital’s diverse patient population. The program achieves this through a variety of initiatives to promote professional development, student outreach and culturally-competent care, all geared toward the main objective of creating and maintaining a strong culture of diversity.
The Magnet Recognition ProgramŪ was developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to recognize health care organizations that provide nursing excellence. The program also provides a vehicle for disseminating successful nursing practices and strategies.
MGH Cares About Pain Relief
Millions of people in pain cost billions of dollars in medical care and lost productivity in the United States each year. Pain is the single most common reason that people seek medical care. We have known for three decades how to prevent or treat most pain, yet pain remains a major complication of many disease states and procedures. Unnecessary pain is widely experienced by patients in all settings, across age groups, and across race, gender, and culture. 90% of cancer-related pain can be controlled with readily available medications. An even greater percentage of postoperative pain can also be well controlled, permitting faster recovery and earlier discharge from the hospital.
