Join a dynamic and engaging team that offers a great supportive working environment where you will have the chance to contribute towards improvements in the community and make positive changes to patient care. A highly rewarding role that offers the capacity to grow and enhance your skills set, you will work as a Clinical Nurse, providing proficient, person centred, clinical nursing care and/or individual case management to clients in a defined clinical area of diabetes. Working collaboratively with the client, their family, team members and external providers, you will monitor client diabetes care plans to ensure appropriate care outcomes are achieved. Within pre-determined guidelines, and in a multidisciplinary primary health care setting, you will assess clients, select and implement different therapeutic interventions, and/or support programs and evaluate progress. Furthermore, you will be accountable for providing health education, counselling and/or therapeutic programs to improve the health outcomes of individual clients or groups.
