You will be responsible for the provision of a range of pain management psychology services within The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, striving to achieve better health outcomes for patients. Some work may also be required within the Royal Adelaide Hospital as part of the pain management service. The Pain Management Unit (PMU) is a multidisciplinary team consisting of Anaesthetists, Rehabilitation Physicians, Psychiatrists, Psychologists (including Clinical and Health Psychologists), Physiotherapists, Registered Nurses and administrative staff.
The PMU currently employs several psychologists who conduct assessments, design and implement intervention programmes, and provide therapy services to individuals with pain and their families. Psychological services are provided predominantly to outpatients, with a limited amount provided to inpatients, and may be provided as individual or group therapy. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital provides health services by means of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services using the most modern available methods of assessment and treatment in medical, surgical, mental health, allied health and other techniques. Emphasis is placed on continuity of care before and after hospitalisation and care is coordinated by a multidisciplinary team.
You must hold an appropriate degree (Masters of Clinical or Health Psychology) or an equivalent qualification as recognised by the National Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA), and have general registration with the PsyBA. With demonstrated experience in psychology assessment, treatment and treatment evaluation, you will be able to apply special skills in assessing and resolving clinical problems. This will be evident in your ability to design, implement and evaluate psychological procedures and interventions including individual, group and family interventions, and consultancy services to hospital units and outside agencies.
