ADVANCED PRACTICE PROVIDER POSITIONS – TIMMONS AREA (PUBLIC HEALTH CARE SYSTEM POSITIONS)

Category: Marketplace / Practice Opportunities

Description:

Summary of Position:

Health Sciences North is looking for service providers with their own clinical practice in the Timmins area to work as Low Back Pain Advanced Practice Providers (APPs).

This work stems from the successful pilot program: Interprofessional Spine Assessment and Education Clinics (ISAEC) for low back pain.  The Rapid Access Centre – Low Back Pain (RAC-LBP) is an innovative, upstream, shared-care model of care in which patients receive rapid low back pain assessment, education and evidence-based self-management plans. It is designed to decrease the prevalence of unmanageable chronic low back pain, reduce opioid initiation, and reduce unnecessary diagnostic imaging as well as unnecessary specialist referrals.

The APP acts as the first and primary point of contact for assessment and consultation of referred patients from the Timmins/Cochrane region; provides a defined program of care to the patient with an emphasis on education, self-management and health promotion strategies; develops a collaborative care plan with the patient and their primary care provider and documents progress against the care plan; and identifies signs and symptoms requiring a change in the plan of care, diagnostic imaging/testing, or referral to a physician specialist.
