Will you actively create a healthier future for tomorrow?

 

At Medibank we’re encouraged to think big. We have a clear purpose to impact better health outcomes for our customers, patients and our community.

 

We celebrate diversity of thought because we want to make better decisions for our customers. As we work towards our goal of better health for better lives, we value the knowledge and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We are working hard to create an inclusive workplace and develop Indigenous careers.

 

The Opportunity

CareComplete provides benefits at both an individual and community level—helping Australians improve their health and avoid preventable hospital admissions and taking pressure off the healthcare system.

We are looking for a part time or full time (0.6-1.0 FTE) Cardiac Rehab Care Coordinators to join the team supporting a national program, Heart Health at Home.

This opportunity will be an initial fixed term contract for 12 months with the possibility of extension.  

As this is a national role, you can be located anywhere in Australia, and work flexibly, including work from home. 

 

As a Care Coordinator with significant experience in the area of Cardiac Rehabilitation you will work with clients who have recently been discharged from hospital following a cardiac event. You will utilise a coordinated and integrated approach, facilitating health behaviour change and improving health outcomes through the delivery of health coaching and an innovative remote cardiac rehab program.

With a focus on Cardiac Rehabilitation, you will be:

  • Initiating contact with potential participants and completing an enrolment process;
  • Managing a caseload of participants and coordinating appropriate cardiac rehab plans;
  • Delivering evidence based cardiac rehab education, coaching and support to participants via telephone;
  • Monitoring participants’ health to ensure any risk factors or deterioration are identified and managed appropriately
  • Assisting participants to access and utilise the Cardihab app to support their cardiac rehab program
  • Actively engaging with participants’ GPs and/or cardiologists, to ensure that they are aware of the program and participant’s progress

 

You will be supported by a Clinical Lead, Medical Advisor and consultant Cardiac Specialist to ensure the service provided is of the highest quality, and underpinned by the latest evidence base.

 

Please note this role is a non-hands on, clinical role.

Working in this highly autonomous position you will have an organised and flexible mindset that allows you to meet the unique needs of your clients. Additionally, you will also have the following skills/experience:

  • At least 5 years professional clinical experience as either a Registered Nurse, Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist with current registration with AHPRA or ESSA
