Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC) is dedicated to meeting the diverse, holistic health needs of the people of Scarborough by addressing the physical, mental, social, financial and environmental aspects of their health. Through the promotion of healthy lifestyles and delivery of a comprehensive range of culturally competent health and social services, we cultivate vital and connected communities.
The Scarborough inter-professional primary care access model is a partnership to enhance care for the vulnerable, marginalized clients living in the Scarborough North and South Sub-regions. In this pilot, the priority population includes clients with symptoms of long term disability, who are unable to navigate the health care system independently and require access to inter-professional teams.
Bring your passion for community based healthcare to this fast-paced and dynamic environment, as well as your program development and implementation experience to this role.
SCHC is currently hiring for 2 full-time Registered Nurses for their Community Health Team.
Key areas of responsibility:
The Registered Nurse works in collaboration with Ontario Works clients and their health care providers to collate information on a clients' disability. The information is carefully compiled and articulated in the Disability Determination Package (DDP) for adjudication to the Disability Adjudication Unit. Successful DDP applications make clients eligible for Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) benefits which offer the financial stability required to improve their long term health.
Sensitivity and awareness of culturally and racially, economically and socially diverse communities
All applications are accepted online.
