Early Intervention and NDIS Support Lead I Royal Melbourne Hospital

Summary

  • North West Area Mental Health Service - RMH
  • Located in Coburg, Full time - Fixed term
  • Join an inclusive, supportive team of professionals
  • Career progression opportunities to suit your professional development goals.  

 

The Royal Melbourne Hospital has an exciting opportunity for an Occupation Therapist (GR 2), Social Worker (GR 2) or a Registered Psychiatric Nurse (GR 3 or equivalent) to join the North West Area Mental Health Service team in Coburg. The purpose of this role is to build capacity within area mental health services to ensure all eligible consumers have been referred for psychosocial support through either scheme, and to provide an AMHS interface between NDIS and EIPRS providers.

Life with Us: 

NorthWestern Mental Health is one of the largest providers of Mental Health Services in Victoria. Our multi-disciplinary workforce of skilled and dynamic clinicians, consumers and carers, provide a recovery-oriented approach to care. We are dedicated to providing a caring and high quality range of specialist, community and hospital-based mental health services for youth, adult and aged people who are experiencing, or are at risk of developing a serious mental illness.

Psychosocial Support is one of the most important factors contributing to a person’s recovery. People receive this support through rehabilitation programs such as CCU’s, through families, carers and the community. It supports people to build skills to manage their mental illnesses, develop social skills and friendships, and build capacity in managing day-to-day activities.

With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), all non-clinical mental health support services were transitioned to an NDIS funding model, meaning those individuals without NDIS packages could not access psychosocial support services.  The Early Intervention Psychosocial Response program was developed to fund community support providers to provide psychosocial support to consumers without NDIS packages.  Referral to this service has not yet been fully maximised.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has been gradually implemented across the NWMH catchment areas, however recent audit results show that only 30% NWMH consumers have an NDIS package, and only 62% of these consumers utilise their package. It is estimated that a further 15% of consumers meet criteria but clinicians have not had capacity to complete applications.

About you: 

  • Maintain a database of consumers who have received a psychosocial support package.
  • Identify eligible consumers of the service who have not received a psychosocial package.
  • Actively work with clinicians to identify suitable consumers and support referral and linkage with EIPSR service, to include attending all NWAMHS sites, meeting with key clinicians individually and reviewing case lists, meeting with consumers to provide information on EIPSRS and supporting completion of referral and initial engagement phase with EIPSRS.
  • Support clinicians through development of high quality applications for support packages.
  • Work closely with providers and clinicians to troubleshoot any difficulties in consumer uptake of packages.
  • Report and track EIPSRS data and discharge outcomes.
  • Identify barriers in accessing services, and work in collaboration with the Chief OT to develop appropriate mechanisms to support uptake.
  • Promote both psychosocial schemes within the service.
  • Participate in liaison meetings between the AMHS and providers.
  • Participate in audits and service evaluation where required.
  • Tertiary qualification, current registration and experience in clinical mental health, NDIS sector, AOD sector or other Human Services Sector 
  • Experience in supporting those with psychosocial disability identify their needs and access appropriate supports
  • Working collaboratively with multiple agencies and services


Our Commitment to You:

  • NorthWestern Mental Health boasts a sophisticated learning structure and we pride ourselves on supporting continuing professional development.
    Comprehensive Health & Wellbeing Programs including; On-site staff gym, Staff Medical Service, Employee Assistance Program, Peer Support Program - run by our dedicated employees.
  • Salary packaging options, monthly ADOs for full time staff (That’s an additional day off every month!), close to public transport.
  • Values based organisation offering great prospects for career diversity and professional advancement, including training and research opportunities, and access to mentorship and leadership programs.

The RMH is proud to be a workplace that champions diversity, inclusion and equality for our staff and our community.  Our goal is for our people to feel safe, included and supported so that they can be at their best every single day. We encourage talented people from all backgrounds, abilities and identities to apply to our vacancies, and will consider adjustments to support such applications.

Url: www.squishkids.com.au

Summary

Looking for an awesome job?

We have a full time (or shared part time) position for an OT wanting to continue a career in paediatrics. Opportunity to take the clinical lead. 

Why is this job any different from other paeds OT jobs? 

We'd like to think that you will never feel more supported, looked after and comfortable than you will in our team. We spend more waking hours together than we do at home. You have to love going to work!

Our focus is people.

Our work culture comes first with the care of our team. The excellent care of our clients flows easily from there.

Our practice operates for the kids and their parents.

We do not have a focus on KPIs. We work closely with families to support their understanding of their child's needs and therapeutic approaches. (We use a neurodevelopmental learning approach). 

Our paeds team includes both highly experienced and recently graduated OTs as well as additional senior clinical support, OTAs and admin support.

We value every staff member as equal and deliberately keep a flat staffing structure. You will not experience any sense of pressure to meet numbers, or any sense of competition from colleagues. 

Where are we?

In the Redlands (south-east of Brisbane city, on the coast) - the launching point for Moreton Bay and North Stradbroke Island. We run two clinics:

Victoria Point (low traffic and easy parking! - And, just around the corner form the beach) and from:

Capalaba (local to all shops, easy parking and quick access via main roads).  

Working in the Redlands means you get to drive away from the traffic. 

What do we want?

As a cohesive team, we are looking for someone who is keen to learn and who wants to be part of a small and very effective team. We value open communication. 

We are looking ideally for an experienced clinician or mature new graduate. 

While we have busy times that need covering, we are flexible in how / when you work. Working Saturdays is possible (but not mandatory). 

What else?

We outreach to local schools, Kinder and Day Care. We provide some in-home (or in-park!) therapy determined by the best environment for the kids. We have maintained some telehealth post-COVID restrictions in QLD because they have been very successful for some kids. 

We offer professional and clinical support, supervision, and professional development. We work closely with Speechies at both clinics. 

Our caseload predominately includes kids with ASD, developmental delay, ADHD, Sensory Integration issues and anxiety, as well as genetic conditions and physical / neurological conditions. 

Opportunity to build experience via our adults practice (15 OTs, 2 DTs). 

Want to know more?

We are happy to put you in touch with current staff so you can find out what they really think – pros and cons. 

Feel free to visit one or both of the clinics and have a look around. And, check out our website: www.squishkids.com.au   

Great! When can I start?

Starting now. 

Generous remuneration package. 

Interested enough to apply?

Send through your application (include three referees, their phone and email contacts) with a cover letter (tell us a bit about you). 

Email our lovely admin team (Emma and Danielle) at info@squishkids.com.au
