Your Opportunity:

As a member of a multidisciplinary team, the successful candidate will provide occupational therapy assessment and intervention in schools located in and around the Drumheller and Three Hills areas. Services are provided as part of collaborative partnership with school division partners, supporting teaching staff with universal strategies, as well as offering targeted group and individualized partnership services. In addition, service to preschool children will be provided at the Drumheller and Three Hills Community Health Centres. This position is based out of the Drumheller Health Centre. The schedule for this position aligns somewhat with the school calendar. In the heart of the Canadian Badlands in Southern Alberta, the Drumheller Valley offers visitors a unique combination of spectacular scenery and interesting things to do – think Jurassic Park! Rolling fields suddenly give way to steep, dry coulees ridged with the strata of hundreds of years of erosion by time, wind and water. Through it all, the tranquil Red Deer River gently makes its way through parkland and a myriad of recreational opportunities. Come to Drumheller – there is nowhere quite like it in Alberta! Join a team of skilled and dedicated health care professionals, support staff and physicians who promote wellness and provide health care every day, all across the province. We are passionate about what we do. Discover interesting and challenging work, where you have the opportunity to grow your skills, collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams and make your mark as you contribute to a healthy Alberta.

Description:

As an Occupational Therapist I, you will be working both independently and as part of an interdisciplinary team, responsible for enabling occupation through activities of assessment, treatment planning, intervention, consultation, education and follow-up, based on the patient's individualized goals, with outcomes focused on enabling the patient (client, resident) to perform meaningful daily occupations. You will provide clinical direction to therapy assistants, support personnel and students. You will review clinical referrals, accept, screen and assess client needs from an occupational therapy perspective in collaboration with other health disciplines. You will work in partnership with community agencies and providers as appropriate, to facilitate referrals and services to support care transitions in hospital and community settings. You will establish and maintain effective communication with colleagues, medical staff, and healthcare practitioners concerning documentation, treatment plans, progress and discharge. You will participate in client, family and caregiver education in collaboration with other disciplines, producing and maintaining clinical data, information, documentation and verbal reports to support the delivery of occupational therapy services, including charting.
