Silver Chain delivers a comprehensive, community-based RMO training program.
The training is designed to provide more recently qualified doctors with a rich and diverse experience of medical care in the community, helping to create a medical workforce that supports community-based care programs. Currently there are opportunities to work in Home Hospital and Palliative Care programs.
The Silver Chain Home Hospital and Palliative Careservices allow patients to receive care in their home, rather than in a hospital, which has not only been demonstrated to provide better patient outcomes but also a significant financial benefit for the Western Australian health sector. During the course of their placement, RMOs are exposed to and perform a wide range of tasks and procedures, fully supported by an experienced clinical team.
Feedback received from doctors who have completed the program supports the value of community-based care as part of their training.
We are pleased to promote a healthy work/life balance with limited weekend and on-call work.
The registrar training program is supported by a structured educational environment including;
specialist consultants and registrars,
a medically qualified Director of Clinical Training and Education,
RMO Administration Manager
specialist consultants in Home Hospital and Palliative Care,
supervision by experienced medical practitioners,
a dynamic multi-disciplinary team, and
weekly education sessions with supporting online modules
In 2017 we have 6 RMO positions which rotate over five terms throughout the year. The 6 RMO positions are distributed between our Home Hospital Program and Palliative Care Program. RMOs are allocated to one of three locations across metropolitan Perth (Maddington, Jandakot and Kingsley), depending on service demand.
