FYI posters about diversity

070700FYIDiversity1.jpg (37196 bytes)The most recent posters in the FYI campaign are being distributed throughout the hospital this week. The posters focus on valuing diversity and respecting the cultural backgrounds of patients, visitors and other employees. The posters are meant to remind MGHers of the hospital's mission to provide high-quality, individualized care that is culturally sensitive to the needs of all individuals regardless of race, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability or socioeconomic status.

"Contemporary health care requires that we have the ability to provide care that reflects cultural competence," says Deborah Washington, RN, MS, director of Diversity for Patient Care Services. "As a large teaching hospital, we must be cutting edge in our knowledge of the values, beliefs and customs of our diverse patient population as well as our science."

The posters are part of the FYI campaign, which is meant to help keep MGHers apprised of important information related to their roles and responsibilities within the MGH community.
