Keynote Speakers

Professor Catherine Crock AM – Keynote speaker

After identifying the direct correlation between organisational negativity and staff wellbeing and effectiveness Professor Crock founded the Hush Foundation and the Gathering of Kindness events. She is dedicated to building, nurturing and instilling a culture of kindness throughout the healthcare system.

Her two plays “Hear Me” and “Do You Know Me” have been performed in hospitals and aged care settings across Australia raising awareness of patient centred care, communication and patient safety issues and encouraging a shift in the culture and behaviour in healthcare.

In 2015 she became a Member of the Order of Australia for her contribution to medicine, to community healthcare standards and to the Arts.

She is a Professor at Deakin Universities Centre for Social and Early Emotional Development.

Her keynote address Balancing science with humanity: how kindness restores the whole in medicine will be a not-to-be-missed highlight of RACP Congress 2020.
