Are you passionate about outcomes for children and young people across Queensland? We're committed to providing life-changing healthcare for children and young people for a healthier tomorrow. About the Child and Youth Community Health Services The Child and Youth Community Health Services (CYCHS) brings together a variety of specialist community services to help our kids and their families to lead healthier lives. CYCHS predominantly provides front line health care to communities throughout south east Queensland.
In fact, the service provides access to community care to around 470,000 children, which represents 42 per cent of Queensland's children. A range of services are provided across the continuum of care as well as health promotion. A number of Child and Youth Community Health programs, including Deadly Ears, reach communities throughout the entire state.
The service's 450 (full time equivalent) staff work in and from more than 50 community health centres, plus clinics, hospitals, schools, shops and offices, covering a geographic area beyond Beaudesert in the south to Kilcoy in the north. Your Opportunity: The role of Nurse Navigator – Navigate Your Health will be to provide advanced clinical and professional practice, facilitating a safe and efficient patient journey across the continuum of care to support children and young people from both Child Safety and Youth Justice pathways. This will be facilitated through applying the Nurse Navigator principles of coordinating patient centred care, creating partnerships, improving patient outcomes and facilitating systems improvement.
The role will improve complex patient care, increase system efficiencies, and reduce costs by streamlining and coordinating care.
