Employment Status Permanent Full Time
Entity Sydney Local Health District

Salary $111,667.00 - $113,884.00

Purpose of Position

The primary purpose of the exciting, new Fracture Liaison Coordinator role for Royal Prince Alfred Service (RPAH) is to undertake the ongoing implementation of RPAH Osteoporosis Re-Fracture Prevention (ORP) Service.  The RPAH ORP Service aims to prevent re-fracture in patients aged 50 and over, post minimal trauma fracture, related to low bone density (osteoporosis).  This is by ensuring a formal process for the early identification of patients at risk of future fracture, assessment of fracture risk, establishing goals of treatment based on assessment findings, development of multifactorial collaborative management plans, referral to external providers as required, and structured follow-up to ensure treatment goals have been achieved.  The Fracture Liaison Coordinator is involved in the identification, assessment, care coordination and case management of patients attending the RPAH ORP Services, under the clinical oversight of a nominated Physician (Rheumatologist, Endocrinologist or Rehab Physician). 

 

The Fracture Liaison Coordinator position requires high level musculoskeletal clinical skills as well as knowledge and experience working with chronic care populations.  Experience in the clinical management of patients with osteoporosis is desirable.  Integral to the success of this position is application of the principles of chronic disease management, establishing care pathways with community health care providers, and effective care coordination. 

 

This role will work in close collaboration with the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) Musculoskeletal Network.  The Fracture Liaison Coordinator will follow the over-arching principles of the ORP Model of Care as described by the ACI, with consideration given to local resources and requirements.
