JOB SUMMARY: Grand River Hospital will serve as the physical hub for the region’s low back pain RAC.
The Waterloo Wellington LHIN will have a dedicated Practice Leader (PL) as well as Advanced Practice Providers (APPs).
The PL will be located at the Grand River Hospital and will be responsible for the overall management of the ISAEC Waterloo Wellington LHIN program and staff.
The APPs are located in both primary care practices and independent practices in the community. All low pain RACs will be connected through a centralized referral and case management system. As an integral leader within the ISAEC RAC team, the PL is an innovative, client service oriented clinical expert with both clinical care and leadership responsibilities. The PL will provide clinical guidance and training (in collaboration with the Clinical Sponsor – physician specialist), oversee and supervise clinical and professional practice, and act as a leadership resource for the region’s APPs—mentoring and coaching, monitoring performance and workload, and ensuring high patient and staff satisfaction. The PL acts as the first and primary point of contact for low back pain patients identified by the community APPs as requiring more advanced assessment and management. As such, the PL plays a key role in identifying signs and symptoms requiring a change in the plan of care, requisitions for diagnostic imaging/testing if required, or referral to a physician specialist.
• Minimum 4 years of clinical experience following completion of an accredited, entry-to-practice program in a regulated health profession, required.
• Member in good standing of respective professional/legislative college at the provincial level, required.
• Minimum 1 year of clinical experience in the musculoskeletal-spine area, required.
• Completion of a post-graduate musculoskeletal-related credentialing program or a total of 4 or more years of clinical experience in the musculoskeletal-spine area, required.
• Experience in an advanced practice role in an integrated primary care environment, preferred.
• Relevant administrative experience, preferred.
