“We are seeking an Transitional Year/Fellow Intensive Care for Hawke’s Bay District Health Board who shares our values of He kauanuanu – Respect, Ākina – Improvement, Rāranga te tira – Teamwork and Tauwhiro – Care.
For a level 2 unit, due to its geographical location, Hawkes Bay ICU is somewhat unique. 13 beds, cases include everything except those requiring cardiothoracic and neurosurgical intervention. Critically ill paediatric cases are common and complex HDU patients provide experience in both long and short term ICU patient management.
The Fellow will integrate into the consultant roster with dedicated SMO support at all times. The Fellow will have the opportunity to manage the busy 13 bed unit, outreach and transport service, with the level of support and supervision tailored to their experience.
Hawke’s Bay is a community focussed unit. The Fellow will help to co-ordinate treatment plans with the multidisciplinary team and the parent teams responsible for patient care. We focus on family, and the Fellow will play an active role in leading family meetings, goals of treatment discussions as well as organ donation conversations.
Co-ordination of complex teams will extend to those in the aeromedical realm, with both fixed and rotary wing transports. The Fellow will play a role both in the co-ordination of this service, and also in providing critical care transportation for higher risk patients.
Our unit actively participates in research including clinical trials through ANZICS and audit. The Fellow would be expected to develop their Quality Assurance portfolio though involvement in monthly morbidity and mortality meetings, and there would be ample opportunity for non-clinical portfolio development with guidelines, audit and education. The education role of the position would be seen as key – with dedicated time to provide education sessions for the registrars, nursing staff, allied health the wider hospital community. HB ICU provides teaching for both part 1 and part 2 CICM exam candidates, and exam candidates from other disciplines. We pride ourselves on a high degree of success in these domains.
Continuing with our community focus, we strive for cultural competence education through the Te Hauora ki te Matau-a Maui HBDHB Ngakau Ora and Engaging Effectively with Maori programmes, through reflective practice that centres on the notion that cultural competence is just as critical as other forms of competence against which workforce performance is assessed
And that is just work – Hawke’s Bay is a stunning place to live. Housing is still reasonably affordable, the weather is temperate, and there is a wide range of cultural and outdoor activities to keep your free time busy. Excellent schools, good infrastructure, and employment opportunities make is a great place to raise a family.
