Our concern, caring and grateful thanks go out to all those who are working to help us deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, and particularly to those who are in the forefront, caring for the ill.
The MRCSC has suspended in-person conferences during the pandemic and has been offering free, 90-minute, web-based presentations. The MRCSC Spring 2022 program is scheduled for April 28, 2022, from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. The Program, Healing the Caregiver: Sustaining Self-Wellbeing Practices in Stressful Times, will explore healing practices for the caregiver through the lens of Caring Science, including experiential activities around mindfulness, reflective practice, meditation, and other mind-body-spirit renewal practices. This website will have more details as they become available. Please go the MRCSC Spring 2022 Program page on this website to register for this program.
Welcome to the Massachusetts Regional Caring Science Consortium (MRCSC) website. The MRCSC mission is to increase opportunities for nurses in all roles and other health care providers to reconnect with core values and the heart of their healing profession. The MRCSC is a forum for nurses and other health care professions to share and explore Caring Science and caring practices that foster and sustain personal and professional well-being and growth, healing relationships, healthy work environments, and best outcomes in patient care. Toward this goal, the MRCSC offers local no-fee semi-annual or annual conferences in partnership with schools of nursing or health care institutions.
This website serves to increase communication about and registration for the local MRCSC conferences, as well as to provide information about other local, national, and global Caring Science and caring practice initiatives, educational opportunities, and conferences.
“Nursing’s [and other health profession’s] social, moral, professional, and scientific contributions to human kind and society lie in its commitment to sustain and advance human caring values, knowledge, practices, and ideals in theory, practice, education, and research…” (Watson, J. (2012). Human Caring Science: A Theory of Nursing, Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett Learning.)
