Job Description


Are you a registered nurse (BScN) experienced in palliative care and looking for a different kind of practice environment? You’re looking in the right place.


The South West LHIN is currently seeking one (1) Registered Nurse to work as a Float Care Coordinator in our community-based Complex Team. In this role, you will support medically complex and palliative/end of life patients in London and Middlesex County. This is a permanent full time opportunity.


As a valued member of our Home and Community Care portfolio, the Complex Care Coordinator facilitates the journey through Ontario’s health care system by assessing referred patients, determining their health care needs and eligibility, and ensuring they receive the services and care they need, where and when they need them.


As a Complex Care Coordinator, you will have the opportunity to impact lives in your community, enjoy a balanced lifestyle, and be part of a great team that makes care happen.


What will you do?


  • Work in close collaboration with system partners to provide care for the Complex Palliative population.
  • Link patients with community service providers to maintain the patient’s safety in their own home while prioritizing the prevention of hospital admission or ED visits and possibly delaying or avoiding admission to Long-Term Care.
  • Provide a RAI-HC assessment within one (1) week of a patient's discharge from ED or hospital and a minimum of every 90 days.
  • Have significant interaction with hospital partners and our LHIN hospital teams to support effective transition of patients from hospital to home.
  • Balance patient needs and choices with available resources, ensuring patients’ values and preferences are respected.


What must you have? 

  • Membership, in good standing, with the College of Nurses of Ontario.
  • Minimum of five (5) years’ related professional experience.
  • Training/certification specific to palliative care (i.e., Fundamentals, LEAP, CAPCE).
  • Superior communication, interpersonal, and conflict resolution skills with high emotional intelligence.
  • Knowledge of the health care delivery system and community resources.
  • Valid driver’s license and access to a reliable vehicle.


What would give you an advantage? 

  • Ability to speak French or another second language.
  • Experience and proficiency with RAI-HC assessment tools.
