From the AAPA Facebook page: "Working in Oz PAs can now work in Queensland, Australia. Last month, the Queensland Department of Health issued guidelines on "Physician Assistant (PA) Clinical Governance." This now means PAs can work throughout the health sector in this state. Thanks to PA Rod Hooker for bringing this to our attention." http://www.health.qld.gov.au/qhpolicy/docs/gdl/qh-gdl-397.pdf I'm an Aussie citizen and would love to work there one day (a while down the road...). Anyone know of good resources for employment opportunities/job boards for Oz?
I know that professions such as CNA, PTA, phlebotomy, etc are acceptable for getting HCE. I've worked as a CNA with Trach and Ortho patients, but have also worked as a direct support professional in a group home for people with disabilities, a daycare with infants, and currently work in a transition home for homeless teens. I'm wondering if I could make these last three professions qualify as HCE. I've had to provide personal care, take temps, pulses, distribute meds, and perform safety checks at all of these jobs but wonder since they are not in a healthcare setting if it would even worth my time to mention them in applications. I worked approx. 200 hours as a CNA (very part time in High School) Approx. 800 hours in the group home Approx. 1280 in the daycare Approx 1400 in the transitional home I'm wondering if anyone has SUCCESSFULLY been able to relate their non-healthcare jobs (that have healthcare aspects) to appropriate HCE. Thanks for the help guys!
