Advertisement text Position Summary:

The Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) is seeking to employ an enthusiastic and motivated Assessment Clinician on a permanent part time basis to complement the existing multi-disciplinary team. Practicing within the framework of the Aged Care Assessment Program (ACAP) and within Peninsula Health organisational requirements, the Assessment Clinician will provide a comprehensive and independent assessment of the aged client (and some younger adults when appropriate), and with the client develop care plans that promote the restoration of function and/or maximise independence. The Assessment Clinician will also review support plans and facilitate referrals or provide service coordination for older people to engage the range of community or hospital based services in order to meet their specific needs.

Key Responsibilities:

The ACAS is delivered across the boundaries of Frankston, Mornington Peninsula, City of Casey and Cardinia, therefore driving significant distances is a requirement for the position and a current Victorian driver’s license is essential. Also, the successful candidate will possess proven clinical assessment skills and excellent and functional computer literacy; using a laptop or other electronic device in the community environment is an essential requirement of the position. Together with a commitment to delivering a first class service to the aged client group, Clinicians are required to develop and maintain essential working relationships with community providers and associated stakeholders.
The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to work autonomously as an effective member of the team, with commitment to the delivery of coordinated and innovative practice within the community aged care service. You will be dedicated to best practice principles and be active towards achieving personal development and team progression. You will be required to work across the range of health and community sectors to provide sustainable, well-managed and efficient service delivery, together with contributing to the development of strategies that improve Aged Care Assessment Service. This includes an ability to adapt and operate within a changing service environment.

The position is available on a Permanent Part Time basis at 24 hours per week (48 hours per fortnight); previous ACAS experience is therefore highly desirable. The successful candidate will hold formal qualifications in either Allied Health or Nursing at a minimum of graduate level.
