This will include ensuring that all professions (regulated and non-regulated) are working to the top of their scope, working inter-professionally and sharing skills / delegating where appropriate.
In conjunction with the AHS&T Professional Leaders and Allied Health Directors you will gain an insight into the common professional development needs of all the groups by taking a general overview of each of the 40+ professions that make up the AHS&T workforce.
Working collaboratively with all the Directors of Allied Health, Scientific & Technical and AHS&T Professional Leaders, you will foster excellence in practice, ensuring the integration of research- and evidence-based best practice across the AHS&T professions throughout the Southern DHB in a way that is consistent with the organisation’s vision and values for the ultimate benefit of all our patients and communities.
You must be an AHST Professional with five to seven years clinical experience, three of which must be current. It is also expected that you have a broad understanding of Allied Health Scientific and Technical Professions, ie, experience of working in multidisciplinary-interprofessional settings.
