What you'll be doing
The vision for South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) is exceptional care, healthier lives’. SESLHD is committed to enabling our community to be healthy and well, and to providing the best possible compassionate care when people need it.
This position is jointly supported by the mental health inpatient service management and the Keeping the Body in Mind (KBIM) team.
KBIM is an innovative physical health team (comprising of a CNC, Exercise Physiologist, Dietitian and Peer Support Worker) to develop, implement and evaluate targeted lifestyle and pharmacological interventions to reduce cardio-metabolic risk factors in consumers with severe mental illness.
The position will focus on (but is not limited to) working with mental health consumers at the Prince of Wales Hospital to prevent and reduce cardiometabolic risk through evidence-based nutritional interventions.
In particular, the position will assess the nutritional needs of consumers and develop, in collaboration with the consumer, an individualised dietary management plan.
The dietitian will also be involved in delivering education and consultation to mental health clinicians to further facilitate improvements in diet quality among consumers.
The position will be actively involved in collecting and analysing data that will contribute to our understanding of the impact of lifestyle interventions on the cardio-metabolic health of consumers.
SESLHD is committed to creating a workplace that reflects the diversity of our community. This will help ensure our employees, our patients and their carers, feel supported.
We encourage people from different backgrounds to apply.
