The Health Sciences Library supports the continuing education of our physician, residents, nurses, students, staff and guest through a series of reading and discussion sessions. The purpose of this program is to explore the human condition and promote a deeper understanding of each other through the reading and discussion of poems and short stories with a diverse spectrum of Baystate colleagues. By sharing our persoanl reflections and interpretations, we enhance our communication, listening, and empathy skills; these skills are essential components of patient-centered care and multidisciplimary collaboration.
In support of improving patient care, Baystate Health is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
