Current care delivery systems have traditionally focus on addressing patients’ biomedical needs from a clinical perspective, but health is determined by a complex interaction between individual characteristics, lifestyle and the physical, social and economic environment.
Social prescribing is a holistic approach to enable healthcare professionals to address social determinants early in the healthcare setting, by having healthcare professionals working with wellbeing coordinators to co-produce a personalised care plan to improve health and wellbeing for patients.
As a Wellbeing Coordinator, you will be an integral part of a multi-disciplinary team working closely with the clinical team to identify the social issues that impact patients’ health and wellbeing with the objective of co-creating a care plan with patients for their health and social needs. You will engage patients throughout their inpatient stay, establish supportive relationship with community partners, and have good knowledge of community resources to enable patients to have supported self-management within the community after their discharge.
Minimum “N”/”O” Levels with 3-5 years’ of working experience in healthcare and/or community settings preferred. Individuals interested in a mid-career change are also welcome.
