Plenary three: Panel: Launch of the ACEM Strategy Manaaki Mana: Excellence in Emergency Care for Māori 


Dr Kate Anson


Kate Anson is an emergency medicine specialist at Middlemore Hospital, South Auckland, passionate about providing better care to the diverse community we serve. Although I was born in London (UK) of Anglo-Celtic and Italian heritage, I fell in love with Aoteroa NZ 30 years ago on my first visit & have been lucky to call this country my home for 17 years. My medical degree is from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK and my specialist training was undertaken in Christchurch, Auckland and Alice Springs. Learning te reo Māori has led me on a journey to a deeper understanding of te Ao Māori and the struggles of Māori patients & whānau to receive respectful and equitable care. I am honoured to have been involved with Manaaki Mana and am committed to seeing its implementation.
