Your Opportunity:

It is an exciting time to be part of Alberta Hospital Edmonton (AHE) as we realize Ambition 2023 – a five year strategic plan to renew programs and services and become the trusted voice for Mental Health and Addictions. As a key member of a multi-disciplinary team, this Therapy Assistant position will primarily support Vocational Programing in Campus Confections, a retail type store for patient comfort and food items. Campus Confections is a program where participants are able to learn and building customer service and retail experience. The successful candidate needs to be comfortable with cash handling and inventory management. The successful candidate must be able to work well within a team,

as well as independently. The program is located within adult acute services but provides vocational opportunities for all service areas in the hospital.

As a Therapy Assistant, you will work both individually and as part of an interprofessional team under the assignment, monitoring and evaluation of an audiologist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, recreation therapist or speech-language pathologist. You will contribute to effective and efficient rehabilitation services including direct and indirect client care across the health care continuum (healthy living, getting better, living with illness and disability, end of life care) for all ages as well as non-client service provision. This role will require you to work effectively with internal and external partners, and display professionalism and strong ethics in both client centered care and participation in care teams. You will demonstrate evidence of reflective thinking and lifelong learning that enhances individual and team competency. You will have opportunities to use your interpersonal and clinical skills in contributing to quality improvement, program planning and student supervision.
