This position is initially temporary from 1st of July 2022 to 30th June 2023. SPaRTa is integrated into the specialist palliative care teams in the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Cairns. It provides multi-disciplinary palliative care telehealth services throughout the rest of regional Queensland in close conjunction with regional and rural community nurses and GPs.
