Occupational Therapy Job Summary:
Interface are a team of Medico-Legal Occupational Therapists that are expert at assessing the care needs of individuals with a personal injury claim. We are looking for another OT to join our fast growing business.
Whilst we do expect you to have 10+ year’s clinical experience, you do not need to be experienced in medico-legal assessments.
This role is for you if:
•You are willing to travel - assessments are mainly in the greater Sydney region but there can be travel throughout NSW and occasionally interstate.
•You are able to work autonomously – most of the work is home-based and you will be given the autonomy to manage your own work hours (outside client assessment times).
•You are looking for flexible work hours – many of our team members balance part-time clinical work in a hospital setting, others balance the demands of a family.
•You want to grow professionally and learn from other OTs - our experience has shown that great medico-legal OT’s come from a range of clinical areas and put a high value on professional development
•Your report writing ability is envied by many - to really succeed and enjoy medico-legal work, report writing is an invaluable skill. You must be able to write a report that is supported by evidence (clinical and research) and at the same time is easily understood by its readers.
What is involved in each assessment?
•A thorough review of all available medical information
•Performing an assessment of the individual’s functional capacity in their home environment
•Writing a detailed report that comments on an individual’s reasonable and necessary past, present and future equipment/treatment/care needs as well as providing an opinion as to how a claimant can restore functional independence
•Potentially attending court as an expert witness
If you would like flexible hours and opportunity to work from home, excellent remuneration and challenging work with an employer who cares and supports its valued team this may be the role for you!
