Our Complex Clinical Care Network (CCCN) is looking for a flexible and motivated team member to work within the Clinical Assessment (CA) team for a fixed-term period of 12 months.

Your role will be to assess clients in a variety of health settings using the interRAI Home Care assessment tool and create a plan of care that is client centred, restorative and goal focused including developing support packages in a holistic and culturally appropriate manner for older people who require long term support in the community.

Ideally you’ll have experience working with older people in a hospital, community or aged care environment, and be confident working with them and their family/whanau to achieve the best outcomes.
