Alfred Health

Alfred Health is a leader in health care delivery, improvement, research and education. We are the main provider of health services to people living in the inner southeast suburbs of Melbourne, from ambulatory, to inpatient and home and community based services.

  • Part-time - 19 hours per fortnight
  • Fixed-term - 12 month contract
  • Research Nurse Grade 3B

The Department

Neurology has long been recognized as one of the major clinical and research strengths of Alfred Health. A new, weekly neuro-ophthalmology service, has recently been established at Alfred Health within the Department of Neurology. The service is supported by multidisciplinary team that includes two neuro-ophthalmologists, two orthoptists and a neuro-ophthalmology fellow. The Service works closely with its counterpart at The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital.

The Role

Clinical: The Neuro-ophthalmology Practice and research nurse is a key member of the Neuro-ophthalmology Service at Alfred Health. As Neuro-ophthalmology nurse, you will coordinate and triage patients referred to the weekly neuro-ophthalmology clinic (Thursday afternoons) at Alfred Health. You will ensure assessments, tests, documentation, and follow-up investigations are completed in a timely manner to ensure optimal patient outcomes. The Neuro-ophthalmology nurse will act as a “first point of contact” for outpatients with non-urgent questions relating to neuro-ophthalmology care – liaising with the relevant consultants, fellows and registrars.

Research: The second aspect of this role is in establishing and maintenance of a neuro-ophthalmology database of all patients who attend the clinic. The database will become the foundation of future neuro-ophthalmology research projects.  The database will be also established at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and Royal Melbourne Hospital.  The neuro-ophthalmology nurse will be expected to assist with database implementation at these sites.  The neuro-ophthalmology research nurse will be expected to assist with ethics and governance applications and act as a study coordinator for any clinical trials the unit may be involved with.
