Description

Gathering of Kindness: Breaking the Rules for Kindness

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

The Hush Foundation, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Royal Women’s Hospital and the Royal Melbourne Hospital invite you to join us for an afternoon exploring the impact of kindness between staff on the patient experience.

Where: Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, VCCC building

When: Wednesday, 1 November 2017

Time: 2.00pm to 4.30pm

“Breaking the rules for kindness” aims to engage health care providers and consumers in a conversation about the impact of kindness on patient care. What does a big, busy complex health service need to do to create an environment where kindness flourishes? What is the flow-on effect to patient experience?

We will delve into the answers to these questions through:

The Hush Foundation’s new play.
‘What Matters’, written by Australian playwright Alan Hopgood and Dr Cath Crock, examines into the importance
of kindness, empathy and compassion in health care. The Hush Foundation use music, literature and the arts to
transform the culture of healthcare.

Workshops with internationally renowned author and speakers

Dr Lorraine Dickey and Vivien Foulke from The Narrative Initiative. The Narrative Initiative was established
to equip leaders and organisations with the knowledge and skills necessary to harness the power of narrative for social change and is dedicated to building fairer and more inclusive societies.

Who Should Attend?

Everyone is welcome, places are limited and will be allocated on first come first served basis.

Join us for afternoon tea afterwards.
