Physiotherapist - Cardiorespiratory
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced senior cardiorespiratory physiotherapist in our inpatient Allied Health team.
We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic team-player with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. You will have the drive to develop quality services in collaboration with others while working alongside a committed inter-professional team of health professionals.
Dunedin Hospital is a tertiary care facility incorporating cardiothoracic, respiratory and trauma specialities. Our newly re-developed, world-class intensive care unit (Te puna wai ora - Southern Critical Care) is enabling new opportunities for evidence-informed physiotherapy care, including an ECMO service.
We take pride in supporting our staff to grow as clinicians so we run an ongoing support and professional development programme including regular team in-services, senior staff mentoring and peer review, a comprehensive on-call competency training framework, and access to course and conference funding.
Our staff are also part of the Otago Simulation group and provide simulation training resources and programmes to enhance education opportunities, both within the physiotherapy department and wider interdisciplinary teams.
We seek a clinician with a minimum of five years’ experience. You will be able to work autonomously in a variety of inpatient settings including surgical and respiratory wards, and intensive / critical / high-dependency care.
You will be proficient at managing and prioritising a caseload within the inpatient setting and show dedication to developing your own skills while supporting the growth of students, junior staff and the Allied Health Assistant workforce.
