- be able to work independently and to show initiative when solving complex problems
- assess, plan, implement and evaluate occupational therapy interventions
- work collaboratively with all multi-disciplinary teams to provide the best care for our patients and whanau.
As well as all this, you will be an experienced and registered Occupational Therapist with a current practicing certificate and an understanding of and commitment to the multidisciplinary team approach to patient care.
We offer a working environment where you will never be just a number and neither will your patients. Everything about Hospice is personal. Our values are important to us and we work hard to apply them to the whole workplace as well as our patients.
If you think you might like to be part of our team here at Mary Potter Hospice we would love to hear from you.
