Aspire Health is the nation’s largest community-based palliative care provider. Aspire specializes in providing an extra layer of support to patients facing a serious illness through an ambitious palliative care program focused on caring for patients in their homes and outpatient clinics. Aspire’s clinicians are experts in providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness; helping patients and caregivers navigate the healthcare system; guiding patients and caregivers through difficult and complex treatment choices; and providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families.
In collaboration with Aspire’s local Lead Physician, Nurse Practitioners develop complex plans of care in accordance with the patient’s health status and overall goals and values; provide medical diagnostics and treatments in the home consistent with the nurse practitioner’s scope of practice and the patient’s medical condition; educate patients and families on medication usage, diet and nutrition, as well as crisis anticipation and prevention; and communicate medical information to the patient’s physicians and other providers as well as to Aspire’s Lead Physician and broader clinical team. In addition to patient care, the Clinical Manager will serve as the primary clinical mentor / coach to their assigned teams (comprising 5-8 other APPs and SW team members). The envisioned split is estimated to be an average of 50% clinical care /50% Clinical Manager responsibilities with variation based on market and team needs. They will support the Clinical Director in assuring team orientation, competence, professional development and team integrity. The Clinical Manager APP will take part in weekly interdisciplinary team meetings, call schedules and scheduled in-service and education sessions. They will role model Aspire core values and serve as the exemplar clinician in the field.
Aspire Healthcare is a proud equal opportunity employer.
