Occupational Therapist – Grade 2
Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service
Permanent – Part Time (45.6 hours per fortnight)
We are looking to recruit an experienced paediatric occupational therapist to work in the Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service which services the Grampians area.
The Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (VPRS) specifically caters for children and adolescents who, as a result of injury, medical/surgical intervention, or functional impairment, will benefit from a program of developmentally appropriate, time-limited, goal-focussed multidisciplinary rehabilitation. This includes children and adolescents with congenital, developmental-based or acquired conditions amenable to rehabilitation. The VPRS will build on and integrate with existing paediatric and rehabilitation service platforms with links to the VPRS State-wide Service, Allied Health and the Botox Clinic at the Queen Elizabeth Centre.
Staff involved in the program at the Queen Elizabeth Centre include Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Social Work, Neuro-psychology, Orthotics, Paediatrician and Paediatric Rehabilitation Specialist.
You will enjoy a friendly place to work, where there is a strong commitment to providing high-quality evidence-based care. There is excellent support from senior Occupational Therapy colleagues with advanced expertise in all clinical areas. Professional development is supported through regular in-service education, professional support from colleagues and the provision of support to attend continuing education.
