Registered Nurse – Clinical Coordinator

Colbrow Care is in the business of caring for people who need a little and often a lot of support to live their best life. We like to think that focusing on our people – both staff and clients – and keeping their needs and best interests at the core of what we do, sets us apart from the rest.

Our mission is to deliver excellence in personalised care solutions and services, so that all Australian families can live in the comfort of their own homes as independently as possible, for as long as possible.

We strive to set the industry benchmark as the most sought-after individualised care service provider, and therefore we need registered nurses who share our values of commitment, integrity, accountability, and compassion. Embracing these values means you will feel at home at Colbrow. You will be part of a dynamic team that endeavours to make a real difference to every client they engage with, helping them to live their best lives.

We are inviting all registered nurses, with a special interest in Clinical Coordination for our client located in Kensington.

The Role

Coordinate the day-to-day and long-term support needs of client, which are high in complexity (both extensive and intensive) and focusing on maintaining his existing personal independence and enhancing independence where possible.

As the Clinical Coordinator, your role is to minimise the overwhelming impact associated with identifying, organizing, implementing, overseeing and coordinating a broad range of support services that if not for this position, would have to be identified, organized, implemented, overseen and coordinated by our client and his family and/ or household.  This role is carried out in cooperation with the employing agency and the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).

Our client wishes to pursue life’s opportunities as autonomously as possible and requires extensive and intensive support to do so; but does not want this required support to (unnecessarily) disrupt his personal, household or family relationships, nor to stymie his personal, social or vocational pursuits.

Key Responsibilities

  • Coordination, training, and supervision of the nursing and attendant care worker team.
  • Identifying, organising, implementing, overseeing and coordinating other necessary supports needed by reason of our client’s disability.
  • The planning, management, administration and coordination of funded support required to meet our client’s direct-care and day-to-day and longer term support requirements in accordance with Transport Accident Act 1986 entitlements, VCAT/AAT decisions and TAC guidelines (where appropriate).
  • Maintenance of professional standards of practice in accordance with APHRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency).
  • Monitoring support requirements to identify where change is needed and/or additional support required.

You will be required for 20 hours per week for your coordination role along with additional direct care shifts.

Qualifications

Registered nurses will have:

  • Bachelor of Nursing
  • Current AHPRA registration

Registered nurses will also have preferred experience in the following:

  • Respiratory/ Ventilator/ Tracheostomy nursing experience
  • Spinal Injury nursing experience
  • Experience in similar Team Leader/Coordinator/Case manager role
  • Community/ Homecare experience

Application Process

Please note, a meet and greet with our client forms part of the application process.

Only applicants who have had a successful meet and greet will be considered for the position.

Since you will be working with some of the most vulnerable members of society within their homes, you will also need or be willing to obtain the following:

  • Current Police Check and Working with Children’s Check
  • NDIS Worker Screening Check (includes Police Check)
  • Valid working rights in Australia
  • First Aid Certificate (HLTAID011) and CPR (HLTAID009)
  • Mandatory competencies (As required by Colbrow Care)
  • Current Drivers Licence and reliable transport 

Ideally, we want to attract those who share our values and are willing to better themselves through additional training and professional development. You may not have extensive experience but with a growth mindset and some commitment, we will help you establish and grow your career in your community.
