We are committed to ensuring that all candidates hired share our commitment to diversity, antiracism, and inclusion.
The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is seeking a certified physician assistant (PA-C) or advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) to provide an integrative medicine approach to the evaluation and medical management to Oncology and Hematology patients in the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Integrative Medicine Program. The ARNP/PA-C will provide outpatient supportive care and integrative medicine services to a diverse patient population, will be an ambassador within and outside of SCCA as we continue to build this unique and innovative program. They will facilitate IM clinical research in this population. Integrative Medicine services may be offered from time of diagnosis to end of life. Integrative medicine therapies offered will focus on evidence-based symptom management, rather than cancer treatment, due to the available level of evidence at this time. Our vision is that an integrative medicine approach will become the standard of care for these patients.
The ARNP/PA-C will, within an integrative medicine framework, assess and manage basic health needs of patients, addresses treatment toxicities, perform integrative medicine procedures (e.g., acupressure, medical acupuncture), and consult with and refer to professional peers as needed. They will work collaboratively with the oncology treatment team to coordinate care of their patients. All clinical responsibilities are performed within the scope of practice, institutional privileges and under the supervision of an attending physician.
The ARNP/PA-C at the SCCA functions within their scope of practice and collaborates effectively with other disciplines to provide state-of-the-art patient and family-centered integrative oncology care.
