About the Child and Youth Community Health Services
The Child and Youth Community Health Services (CYCHS) brings together a variety of specialist community services to help our kids and their families to lead healthier lives.
CYCHS predominantly provides front line health care to communities throughout south east Queensland. In fact, the service provides access to community care to around 470,000 children, which represents 42 per cent of Queensland's children. A range of services are provided across the continuum of care as well as health promotion.
A number of Child and Youth Community Health programs, including Deadly Ears, reach communities throughout the entire state.
The service's 450 (full time equivalent) staff work in and from more than 50 community health centres, plus clinics, hospitals, schools, shops and offices, covering a geographic area beyond Beaudesert in the south to Kilcoy in the north.
The Clinical Nurse (CN) role provides advanced clinical and problem-solving skills, expert planning and coordination skills in the clinical prevention of illness and injury for young people with complex care needs, ensuring quality standards are met. This role works autonomously within the Healthcare Team structure and is pivotal in the planning, managing and delivering of Youth Health specialist nursing care utilising the social model of health and applying the principles of primary health care within the secondary school setting. The CN provides clinical leadership for professional and clinical practice, education and research. The role supports management activities including portfolio responsibilities.
The School-Based Youth Health Nurse Service aims to promote positive health outcomes for young people and their families by providing confidential individual health consultations offering health information, advice, support, brief intervention, and referral as required. Nurses work with school staff on curriculum, teaching and learning activities; support the development of an environment and school culture which promotes health and wellbeing and liaise with the community and other services.
