Nursing Director – Tasmanian Eating Disorder Service


Would you like to work in beautiful Tasmania?

An exciting opportunity exists for a clinician with experience in treatment of eating disorders and management of health services. The Department of Health Tasmania is recruiting a manager for the incoming Tasmanian Eating Disorder Service (TEDS), a contemporary evidence-based service that will

–           provide treatment for eating disorders (residential and day / evening programs),

–           provide training and education to health services staff, families and supportive others, and other community members,

–           include a specialist eating disorders assessment function

TEDS has been designed by the Department of Health to provide stepped care and system improvement within the existing Tasmanian eating disorder service structure. The detailed service design is yet to take place, and the TEDS Manager will be instrumental in this phase. This includes developing the staffing model, clinical protocols for the service, and determining program activities and timetabling. Building strong relationships with eating disorder treatment providers will be essential to the success of this role, and the service, both within and external to the public system.

The high-level Model of Care has been developed, and can be found at https://www.health.tas.gov.au/health-topics/mental-health/mental-health-projects-and-initiatives-priorities/tasmanian-eating-disorder-service-project

The TEDS Project and capital works are funded by the Australian Government through the Community Health and Hospitals Program.
