    POPULATION OUTLINE:

     

    Individuals and families facing poverty, homelessness, inadequate housing, marginalization and other social and economic inequities are among the most structurally vulnerable populations. When structurally vulnerable populations are also faced with mental health, chronic conditions and/or terminal illnesses, timely access to care and service may be impacted due to their structural circumstances.  This unique and exciting position of Care Coordinator – Palliative Care and Structurally Vulnerable Populations seeks an individual who will work with compassion, comfort and flexibility to help improve access to quality care for the structurally vulnerable throughout their mental health and/or palliative care journey. Serving patients in non-traditional and transitory settings may be required.

     

    POSITION OUTLINE:

     

    If you are a Registered Nurse, an Occupational Therapist, a Physiotherapist, a Speech-Language Pathologist or a Certified Social Worker in Ontario, we would like you to become part of our team. As a Care Coordinator, you will liaise with various health care providers to enable patient optimal health, independence and dignity. Drawing on your knowledge of health services, you are responsible for assessing patients for service eligibility, developing an overall service plan for patients, organizing and coordinating inter-disciplinary services, and ongoing monitoring and evaluation of an integrated caseload.  This will involve explaining relevant services, and coordinating and monitoring their implementation. You will be there to facilitate every step of your patients’ health care experience, linking them with the right information and helping them understand and manage their short- and long-term health care goals.   As a Care Coordinator, you will enjoy freedom and flexibility, but, most of all, you will get to see the results of your efforts – every step of the way.

     

    Please note you may be required to serve patients in non-traditional and transitory settings. Rotation through any care coordination work assignment within Home and Home Community Care Services may also be required.
