Clinical Leader ( Secondary)– HealthPathways
Dunedin or Southland Hospital
Permanent 0.2 FTE
**Internal Applicants only**
Southern DHB is looking for a Clinical Leader to support the HealthPathways Programme in Southern DHB by providing clinical leadership and guidance as an active member of the HealthPathways team.
HealthPathways is a clinician led, management supported process which involves groups from general practice working with their hospital colleagues to identify, agree, and implement opportunities for standardisation and improvement of the management of patients across the primary-secondary interface. The outcome is documentation of those agreements as easy-to-follow guidelines in a website localised to our region. This is a pivotal role for successful implementation of HealthPathways, where you will provide expert clinical guidance and advice for the Programme, lead the engagement with clinical colleagues, promote the Programme both within and external to the DHB.
The main objective of the clinical leader role is to lead the planning, delivery and implementation of the Southern HealthPathways programme through engagement with the clinical workforce. Your role will see you working together with primary and secondary doctors, nurses, allied health and management to establish a new way of working together, identifying opportunities for HealthPathway development and contribute to plans for future requirements for service delivery based on changes to clinical practice, new technologies and needs of the population. You’ll bring a whole of system view, be prepared to challenge the status quo and foster collaborative relationships.
To be considered for this role you will need to be a Senior Medical Officer who has a strong understanding of the primary sector. Personally, you will have excellent interpersonal skills, a pragmatic person with a can-do attitude and strong communication skills.
Closing Date: Thursday, 12 October 2017
