Registered Nurse – Hepatitis C

Permanent, full-time (1.0 FTE) position – Toronto, ON

A team-oriented and experienced RN who shares our passion for making a difference, you see this role as an opportunity to take the next step in your successful career while contributing to a vision of Inclusive Communities. Responsive Healthcare. Healthier Lives.

As a Registered Nurse – Hepatitis C, you'll work with people who use drugs and people who are homeless in mid-west Toronto, as part of a joint initiative between Parkdale Queen West Community Health Centre (PQWCHC) and South Riverdale Community Health Centre (SRCHC).

Reporting to the Manager, Clinical and Allied Health at our Parkdale Site, you'll provide direct treatment, support services, health promotion and education in collaboration with interdisciplinary care teams at both PQWCHC sites: Parkdale and Queen West. This will include the delivery of comprehensive client-centred care in multidisciplinary environments throughout the community, to clients through all stages of HCV care and treatment.

Administrative and organizational tasks will be an integral part of your role as an RN, along with determining referred clients' eligibility for treatment, initiating treatment, monitoring progress, and making internal or external referrals, as applicable. Your understanding of various financial assistance or compensation programs available to people infected through the blood system will prove invaluable in assessing client drug insurance coverage and assisting with application forms when needed.

Your degree in Nursing is complemented by current registration as a Registered Nurse with the College of Nurses of Ontario and RNAO membership, and 3 to 5 years of experience in a community, primary care or public health setting. Success in this role will reflect your wealth of knowledge, including demonstrated expertise in medical laboratory procedures, a thorough understanding of infection control and preventative practices, and experience with mental health, harm reduction and chronic illness.

A strong communicator, you'll liaise with community partners and provide community education sessions, as required, and participate in case conferences with other providers to ensure coordination of services. Proficiency in one or more languages other than English would be an asset.
