Kindness is one of the Monash Health values, and as such something we aspire to live by every day.
This year’s Gathering of Kindness will be a virtual affair and all Monash Health employees will have access to the online program of events, culminating in World Kindness Day on Friday 13 November.
The Gathering of Kindness aims to build, nurture and instil a culture of kindness throughout the healthcare system.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr Anjali Dhulia, said it is a great opportunity for us to take stock about this value and think “what does it mean to be kind? What are the behaviours which help us demonstrate kindness to our patients, to our colleagues and to each other?
“It’s a really important time to be kind to ourselves too.”
This year’s online Gathering of Kindness, from November 9-13, will feature a range of fabulous expert guest speakers, performers and international presenters and you can choose which sessions are right for you.
Monash Health was part of the inaugural Gathering of Kindness, and this year’s virtual event is the third time we’ve taken part, under the expert eye of the Patient eXperience team. There will be some additional Monash-specific events, with more details coming soon.
