A physician at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Dr Catherine Crock has been reimagining a kinder health system for patients. She teamed up with professional musicians who volunteered their time to create a collection of unique CDs to help children and their parents during medical procedures.
The result is the HUSH collection, a special compilation of soothing music. Designed to calm and relax people of all ages, it's used within 12 Children's Hospitals and wards around Australia, in operating theatres, treatment rooms and waiting areas, as well as to manage unsettled babies.
By her own admission on Engaging Women, she was intrinsically shy and would not even raise her hands in classes or lectures to answer a question. However, the faces of children in intense pain and fear in the hospital system and being a mother herself changed all that. It brought out the protective maternal instincts that propelled her to find her voice.
