About Melanoma Patients Australia

MPA is the only independent, national not for profit organisation in Australia that offers a national network of support and information to patients, their families, carers, and friends, about melanoma prevention, diagnosis, management and treatment. MPA is also one of the largest melanoma patient advocacy groups in Australia. Our vision is that no-one with melanoma walks alone.

The Role

The MPA Telehealth Nurse position is a new role, which will develop the new telehealth service and take primary responsibility for the operational delivery of the MPA national telehealth nurse case management service for people affected by melanoma.

Many patients when they are first diagnosed with melanoma contact Melanoma Patients Australia for information and support. The national telehealth nurse case management service will provide a new and higher-level support service for patients and their families. The role may include some regional and interstate travel.

  • Assisting patients and their families access existing services within the community
  • Connecting patients with opportunities to participate in medical research and patient feedback initiatives
  • Participating in data collection, health outcomes reporting, program evaluation and improvement

Please note: the primary role is to support patients, provide education and referrals with existing medical and psychosocial services. Where there are questions about treatment, the nurse can support the patient by developing a prompt list of questions to take back to their treating clinician. It is important to note that the nurse in this role must not give medical treatment advice and does not involve clinical counselling.

Qualifications and Experience:
