"We work with artists, patients, health and care staff to recapture the healing power of kindness through music, the arts, and connecting with people. I believe healthcare needs creative voices to help soften the edges of these stressful environments for people - they can help all of us in the care business to do our jobs even better."
Prof Catherine Crock AM - Founder and CEO, Hush Foundation
The evidence is clear; there is a direct relationship between staff wellbeing and patient wellbeing. It is well understood that disruptive or intimidating behaviours by staff undermine team effectiveness and create barriers to cooperation.

The Hush Gathering of Kindness aims to build, nurture and instil
a culture of kindness throughout the health care system.
Learn the ways kindness is driving change for the better around the world.
The annual Gathering of Kindness provides participants with the opportunity to share their ideas, their work and their projects. Through this, we aim to better understand how we can improve our healthcare environment for all stakeholders.
Whether you're working in health and aged care, accessing hospital, home or community health services, or simply wanting to play a role in transforming healthcare for the better, we'd love you to join us. You'll hear from local and international speakers, explore the topics of staff wellbeing and patient safety, and hear important perspectives from our junior doctors and medical staff on things that matter to them.
Everyone has a role to play: kindness starts within all of us.
