Do you believe that work is healthy? Are you interested in being part of a team that helps people return to employability? Would you like to work at home and in the community?
We’re looking for knowledgeable, empathetic, and dedicated rehabilitation professionals to work as key members of our case management team.
What You’ll Do:
You’ll manage complex disability cases in a pro-active manner with the goal of achieving a level of functional improvement that supports the earliest possible return to employability. You will work directly with the claimant as well as their employer, physician and treatment providers to achieve the required level of functional improvement to support the employability goal.
You will assess the rehabilitative needs of claimants who are disabled in order to understand the functional impact of the diagnosis. Then you will develop, implement and monitor the progress of approved rehabilitation service delivery plans based on claimant needs and contractual provisions. Research of appropriate treatment resources as well as active management of service providers resourced to achieve functional improvement toward employability goals is a pivotal responsibility in this role.
You will work in your home office with regular travel within the community. Our region is focused on the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island but extends to the Yukon and BC Interior.
