The HSE have contracted this private facility to commission and manage a new Specialist Rehabilitation Unit. This is located in their state of the art facility oin North Dublin and will open in October 2018.
The HSE mental health services recognise the issue of service users with complex needs remaining in acute units for long periods and therefore a model of care that describes a specialised rehabilitation care pathway for people with severe and enduring mental illness and complex needs, has been developed.
A significant component of this specialised rehabilitation care pathway is the provision of Specialist Rehabilitation Units (SRUs). This facility provides one such SRU in conjunction with the HSE, for those who require a specialised rehabilitation placement. These service users have not yet received the treatment they need in order to be discharged from acute inpatient units. They hope to provide them a space and the supports they need to facilitate their personal recovery.
Our client is providing a 12 bed SRU for HSE service-users with enduring mental health difficulties, predominantly those with a diagnosis of psychosis and associated challenging behaviours. The goal of the project is to support residents over 18 – 24-month period through a progressive rehabilitation and recovery focused programme, so that they are provided with the opportunity to successfully transition from the SRU to supported residential settings in their own communities.
The Senior Occupational Therapist will be a pivotal post holder within the MDT which will also comprise of Consultant Psychiatrist, Senior Clinical Psychologist, Senior Social Worker, Full Nursing team led by a CNM3 and two CNM2s, Peer Support Worker, Recovery Support Workers, CBT, Art/Drama/Music Therapists etc.
This is a fulltime permanent role. The post holder is responsible to the Occupational Therapy Team Lead, Clinical Director or consultant nominee as appropriate and reports to the Clinical Nurse Manager 3 on operational matters and in respect of clinical governance arrangements within the organisation.
The role of the Senior Occupational Therapist is to deliver, develop and manage the occupational therapy service within the Specialist Rehabilitation Unit in line with service plans and objectives and within established professional standards, guidelines and policy. The post holder will work as part of a multidisciplinary team to meet the needs of the service user group.
He/she will also be involved in the continuous development of mental healthcare services and serve on various project teams and committees for that purpose.
Please note that the senior occupational therapist may be required to work in different service areas within the facility.Please email an updated copy of your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Deirdre Treanor on 0429368395.
