MCM Palliative Care (MCMPC) was established in 1981 as the first community-based palliative care service to operate in Victoria. MCMPC aims to enhance quality of life by providing specialist interdisciplinary palliative care for people living with a terminal condition, their families and carers.
MCMPC provides a 24 hour service 7 days a week.
This exciting new opportunity, co funded by MCMPC and Northern Health, aims to increase service integration and promote seamless transition of client care from hospital to home. This position is employed to MCMPC but the role will be co-located between the two services. It is a fixed term role for 12 months, with the opportunity for further expansion pending demonstration of the improved client outcomes against set measurables.
The Hospital Liaison Nurse will work closely with MCMPC and Northern Health Palliative Care to screen, assess and prioritise client care with respect to transition to home from inpatient care. The outcomes of the assessment are used to assist in discharge coordination from the hospital setting and coordination and commencement of appropriate ongoing care in the community environment, including home visitation by the hospital liaison nurse.
