JOB DESCRIPTION

The closing date to submit applications for this vacancy has been extended.

This is a Fixed Term Full Time appointment until 13 February 2022, with the possibility of extension and/or permanency.

EMHS is committed to ensuring that our services are delivered by people who are representative of the diverse communities we assist.

We wholly embrace diversity and inclusion and encourage people to work with us from all ages, races, genders, religions, sexual orientations, family responsibilities or other characteristics, including Aboriginal people, people from culturally diverse backgrounds, individuals with a diverse sexuality or gender or bodily diversity, and people with disability.

Position Profile: We are seeking to appoint a suitably skilled and experienced senior nurse to the role of Clinical Nurse Specialist - Mental Health within the Intensive Community Outreach Team. The Intensive Community Outreach Team provides assertive and intensive care coordination to consumers with severe mental illnesses, complex unmet needs and poor engagement with services.

The successful applicant will perform the functions of a case manager undertaking clinical assessment of an allocated case load of consumers with a mental illness, which includes triage, assessment and management of consumers in a community setting. The Clinical Nurse Specialist will be responsible for the leadership and supervision of employees in the delivery of quality nursing practice. This role initiates quality improvement practices and implements changes and improvements for the mental health service, while providing nursing consultancy and education for the multidisciplinary teams, other agencies and stakeholders.

Area Profile: The East Metropolitan Health Service (EMHS) comprises an extensive hospital and health service network that aims to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of more than 670,000 Western Australians in its catchment area. 
 
Our hospital network works together to provide a combination of tertiary, secondary and specialist health care services including emergency and critical care, state trauma, elective and emergency surgery, general medical, mental health, inpatient and outpatient services, aged care, palliative care, rehabilitation and women’s, children’s and neonates services.

The EMHS consists of Royal Perth Hospital; Armadale Health Service; Bentley Health Service; Kalamunda Hospital; St John of God Midland Public Hospital and a range of community and population health services. 

Eligibility to Apply: Australian citizenship or permanent residency is an essential requirement for applicants to be considered for permanent positions in the public sector.

Other Conditions: WA Health engages staff in positions of trust and responsibility. WA Health policies require applicants to undertake criminal records screening and integrity checking as part of the appointment process. Referees may also be asked to comment on an applicant’s integrity and past demonstration of ethical behaviour.

Whilst this selection process will initially be used to fill the above vacancy, it may also be used to fill other "similar" vacancies throughout the health service. In addition to this, should the successful applicant decline or vacate the advertised vacancy, then the next most suitable applicant may also be selected from this process. Both of these options remain valid for a period of six (6) months from when the authorised delegate endorses the recruitment decision.
