First Kindness Café of 2019

We were honoured to have Dr Caroline Elton, Clinical Psychologist and critically acclaimed author present ‘The fallacy of patient-centred care: putting relationships at the heart of clinical practice’ at the first Kindness Café this year at Monash Medical Centre.

Dr Elton explored how the wellbeing of health professionals can play an important role in the quality of care they provide to patients and families.

She explained how building relationships and promoting engagement can reduce burnout and create a more positive work environment.

The Kindness Café series provides our employees with an opportunity to learn and discuss ways we can create a more positive workplace and build a culture of kindness at Monash Health.

We look forward to implementing the Kindness Café monthly to support our clinicians. You can read more about the Kindness Café here.
