Hospital can be a scary place for children. Dr Catherine Crock is a physician and mother who knows this all too well from working with children with cancer at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne.
Cathy decided to do something to reduce the distress and teamed up with some of Australia’s foremost professional musicians who have 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 is used within Children’s Hospitals in operating theatres, treatment rooms, wards and waiting areas, as well as to manage unsettled babies.
Did you hear Paul Grabowsky and some of the new CD on the ABC today? Really special…
