A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced nurse to work with the multi-disciplinary Multiple Sclerosis Team based at the University Hospital of Wales and the Bladder and Bowel Service at St David's Hospital in Cardiff.
We are looking for a reliable and enthusiastic nurse who has a flexible approach to work with a background and passion for working with individuals with MS or other conditions which may cause neurogenic bladder and bowel dysfunction. The role will involve contributing to the comprehensive assessment, treatment, management and review of patients in clinics and the community as well as the development of protocols and pathways for patients attending the service. Working with both teams you will have the opportunity to develop professionally in a rapidly evolving area where new treatment options are becoming increasingly available.
You will be involved in patient education in a variety of forms including one to one, Newly Diagnosed and Living Well with MS groups. The role will also involve training other health care professionals in the management of bladder and bowel dysfunction and liaison with multi-disciplinary colleagues across specialities such as women's health and colorectal services.
You will be offered training and mentorship from both teams to achieve the competencies required for this specialist post and will have the opportunity to complete the MS Trust Development Module for professionals working with people with MS.
