Senior Physiotherapist - Rehabilitation Services  

Southern District Health Board


Dunedin
• 0.8FTE up to full-time permanent position

About us

Working in a dynamic and evolving community interdisciplinary team within the services covering Older People's Health Rehabilitation Services based at Dunedin Hospital, in the fabulous South Island of New Zealand. You'll work alongside other senior physiotherapists, and wider team members in planning and providing rehabilitation to our patients.

About the opportunity

You'll have the opportunity to develop your knowledge and expertise in rehabilitation with medical, orthopaedic and neurological conditions including traumatic brain injury and stroke. You will also have the opportunity to support, teach and upskill students and rotational staff.

We take pride in supporting our staff to grow and we enable ongoing professional development 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. We work closely with the University of Otago's School of Physiotherapy and support student education throughout clinical placements. Our team is also developing and implementing simulation training resources and programmes to enhance educational opportunities for our staff and students.

About you

As a senior, ideally you will bring to us a minimum of five years physiotherapy experience that includes working in a community setting with patients with stroke and other neurological conditions. Experience with the frail elderly and orthopaedic conditions is also an advantage. You would be able to demonstrate a strong understanding of optimising patient outcomes and facilitating effective rehabilitation in the community, using a patient centred and evidence based approach to goal setting and intervention. You will have the drive to develop quality services in collaboration with others while working alongside a committed inter-professional team of health professionals.

In addition to the experience you bring us, you will have enthusiasm and a willingness to commit to our team and patients. You will be expected to be active in service quality initiatives, therefore be proactive, innovative and have a quality driven leadership approach.

For this permanent role covering the service, you will need to be a New Zealand registered Physiotherapist with a current annual practising certificate.
