Educator & Consultant


Maree O’Dwyer has worked for over 25 years in both the public and private healthcare sectors in Victoria and NSW before becoming a consultant with Vative Healthcare in 2013.  For years Maree has had experience areas of improvement type  roles, from managing and implementing Quality Management Systems, Workplace Health and Safety and finally Redesign and Practice Improvement. Maree can relate to all levels of an organisation big or small, as she has been there at the coalface and felt the frustration and often disappointment in not being able to do more and making improvements stick for those in our care or for our colleagues.

Thankfully she had the good fortune to work with some like-minded Redesigners and Improvement leads whilst at Monash Health and decided to join them at Vative.  Since 2013, Maree leads the Aged Care Division within Vative Healthcare.  During this time Maree has been instrumental in developing and writing course materials, aged care simulations, virtual reality learning tools and materials specifically for current and future work forces.

Being a consultant with Vative Healthcare, works well with Maree’s passion for travel and learning new things.  Maree’s determination for her work is reinforced by a quote from Oprah Winfrey’s “I am a woman in process. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull”
