Dr. Maria Mackay is a registered nurse and midwife with 36 years of experience and currently holds the role of Senior Lecturer / Associate Head of School Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at the School of Nursing, University of Wollongong, Australia. Maria's research interests are focused on embedding Indigenous knowledges in curriculum and exploring the creation of person-centred and culturally safe cultures, emphasising the need to prepare the future nursing workforce for the reality of clinical practice.

Healthcare education programs need to build programs that are not just focused on developing acute care skills in persons working in health, they must prepare students emotionally for the reality of entering practice. Healthful relationships between students and academics are underpinned by a sense of belonging to self and enabling personhood. Join Dr. Maria Mackay for a thoughtful discussion on how to craft these relationships to enable transformative learning.
