Clinical Editors - Southern HealthPathways
Dunedin or Southland Hospital
Permanent, variable FTE available
A significant opportunity exists to accelerate progress towards becoming a truly connected and sustainable Southern Health System by recognising and optimising the value of HealthPathways as a key enabler for successful transformational ‘whole of system’ change.
HealthPathways provides a framework that allows us to realign the way we work, with systems supporting integration and efficiency, and by supporting standardisation of care across and within care settings for an overall better and more successful patient journey. The HealthPathways Programme emphasises that “it’s about people” and a key measure of success at every point in the system includes reducing the time patients wait.
We have the opportunity to create a system of healthcare provision that is safe and equitable across our district providing the right care at the right time, delivered by the right person, at the right place (and as close to home as possible). Health Pathways is a tool that can help us achieve this.
We are currently making some changes to the way in which we develop and localise HealthPathways and are keen to hear from General Practitioners who are interested in becoming Clinical Editors. Roles allow for some flexibility and we are open to different arrangements to ensure opportunities for GP involvement are optimised. We would also like to know if you have a particular interest in a specific area e.g. Paediatrics, Mental Health etc.
We are looking for experienced GPs with excellent relationship skills and a whole of system understanding. You will be a systems thinker who is able to decipher what is meaningful and useful for the system from a myriad of information. Using your extensive clinical knowledge and expertise, you will work alongside subject matter experts to ascertain what content is relevant for Southern HealthPathways, and make the pathways appropriate for a local general practice audience.
Closing Date: Sunday, 15 October 2017
