The Clinical Support Officer (CSO) role will be ward/unit based and support the work activities of nurses, midwives, medical staff and allied health staff, with locally determined shift times based on patient and ward/unit service delivery needs. The CSO may provide CSO functions across the health facility or to more than one ward/unit. The CSO will work closely with existing administrative staff such as ward clerks and communication officers at the ward/unit level. The role will complement existing roles, systems and processes in each organisation. The CSO will provide timely and accurate administrative / transactional services for members of the health care team on designated ward(s) / unit(s) under the direction of a N/MUM. The CSO will work under broad supervision but will be required to take some independent action. Scope exists for exercising initiative in the application of established work practices and procedures. Decisions affecting the overall functioning and management of the ward / unit remain the responsibility of the N/MUM.
