We are a passionate and hard-working team that seeks first and foremost to carry forward the REACH mission: “We work for patients each day to transform kidney care.”
The REACH Social Worker will play an important role in improving care for people with advanced kidney disease both at a population level as well as at an individual level. To support the REACH care team, the REACH Social Worker will assess the psychosocial needs of advanced kidney disease patients and deliver targeted interventions for social, emotional and environmental issues that impact a patient’s ability to improve their health and benefit from provided care.
At the corporate level, you will work closely with the clinical and operations teams to address psychosocial needs for people with advanced kidney disease, including advanced CKD, kidney transplant, ESRD on dialysis and end-of-life. You will approach this work with a mindset of continuous improvement and will implement quality improvement initiatives as needed. You will design training curricula for nurse care managers and other members of the care team to build expertise in addressing social determinants of health and behavioral health needs. You will compile a library of tools and resources for the care team to utilize in working with patients individually and design educational materials for patients.
