JOB DESCRIPTION

Fixed Term Position - 32 Hours per week until June 2023 (salary will be pro rata of the full time salary displayed).


*Readvertised*



The Royal Women’s Hospital is Australia’s first and largest specialist hospital dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of newborns and women of all ages. To join the Women’s is to be instrumental in forging progress towards health equity for women from ground-breaking research through to the bedside delivery of multi-disciplinary clinical care.


Creating exceptional experiences is at the heart of everything we do for our patients, their families, and our people across our specialised services within maternity, neonatal and women’s health.


The Women’s, Launch Housing and HousingFirst have collaborated to develop a housing and support program that will be launched in mid-2021. This multi-disciplinary, multi-agency program is an Australian-first. It will offer a pathway out of homelessness for pregnant women and new mothers – helping them to bond with and care for their babies, access support services, gain independence and break the cycle of homelessness. Ultimately, it aims to change the life trajectory of some of Victoria’s most vulnerable women and babies.


Your contribution 


Reporting to the Program Manager and working with the broader Program team – including workers from HousingFirst and Launch Housing – the Care Coordinator is a senior clinical leadership role in the service. The role provides assessment, casework management and service coordination support to women and infants to advance their health and well-being.


Your duties will include (but are not limited to) the following:



  • Screening of referrals into the Cornelia Program and recommending women to HousingFirst to be accepted (as building owner and landlord, HousingFirst make final decision on tenants to be accepted into service).

  • Conducting initial needs identification and risk assessment of the women once accepted.

  • Leading the development of holistic health and psychosocial care plans for the women, working closely with Launch Housing, to ensure relevant clinical care and to overcome barriers in obtaining and maintaining long term housing.

  • Connecting and referring the women to other external health and non-health service providers as necessary (e.g. Enhanced Maternal and Child Health, Mental Health services, Alcohol and Drug services, Early Parenting services)


About you


To be successful within this role you will need to have:



  • Health professional qualifications (e.g. midwifery or social work tertiary qualifications)

  • Significant experience working with women with complex needs (women with drug and alcohol challenges, including women who are homeless)

  • Demonstrated knowledge of health and psychosocial issues and the impacts of homelessness, alcohol and drugs and violence on a women’s physical, social and emotional health.

  • Eligibility for membership of the Australian Association of Social Work or equivalent
