Job Overview

Job Overview


Vacancy Identification Number (VIN): 2006605

OUR MISSION: To fulfill President Lincoln's promise – "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" – by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans. How would you like to become a part of a team providing compassionate care to Veterans?

The Kansas City VA is embarking on a journey of moving beyond performance measure and becoming the Healthcare System Veterans Trust and Choose.

Our patients depend on us and we depend on professionals like you.

If you are interested in being a part of a LEAN organization and putting other's needs before your own this may be the organization for you. Yours might be the first face they see when they come through our doors. Yours might be the voice they hear right after a surprise diagnosis. Yours might be the eyes they look into as they are pushed in a wheelchair to a frightening procedure. Your attitude reflects us and everything we are proud of in this organization. By applying for this position you have chosen to help serve our patients and we appreciate you.

With the initiation of cultural change, along with knowledge and tools for change, the Kansas City VA will continue to move towards a practice of continuous improvement. In the endeavor, we recognize that this change will not occur suddenly, that dedicated individuals like yourself will be required, that leadership involvement is necessary, and employee engagement paramount.

As a 157 bed medical, surgical, and psychiatric facility, the Kansas City VA provides comprehensive health care through primary care and tertiary care in subspecialty medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is also a teaching hospital affiliated with theUniversity of Kansas and the University of Missouri Kansas City. Take a closer look at Kansas City at www.thinkkc.com.

VA encourages persons with disabilities to apply.  The health related positions in VA are covered by Title 38, and are not covered by the Schedule A excepted appointment authority.

This announcement is open to U.S. Citizens. All applicants applying under this external announcement will be subject to veteran's preference.


This announcement is for a position as a Physical Therapist with the Home Based Primary Care (HBPC) Program for the Kansas City VA Medical Center, primarily assigned to the Excelsior Springs team, but to provide periodic Physical Therapy services for selected patients within HBPC as assigned.  HBPC is a unique model of home care that is very different in target population, process, and outcomes from home care available under Federal and State programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. The HBPC model targets persons with complex chronic diseases that worsen over time and provides interdisciplinary care that is longitudinal and comprehensive rather than episodic and focused. HBPC provides cost effective primary care services in the home and includes palliative care, rehabilitation, disease management, and coordination of care. Members of the HBPC team are expected to visit veteran homes as part of their regular, recurring job duties. 

Major Duties of this position include, but are not limited to, the following:

**Functions as a collaborative rehabilitative health provider of the HBPC teams, providing rehabilitative health prevention, assessment, treatment, management, and professional consultation services in the veteran's residential setting coordinating with OT services.

**Independently develops, implements, and evaluates therapeutic rehabilitative programs within the framework of HBPC and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitative Service (PM&RS).

**Assesses goals, living skills, physical abilities, and related needs for each patient referred for in-home assessment.

**Develops treatment plans directed toward achieving the maximum level of functioning within the home, consulting with other PM&RS disciplines as indicated, and developing the plan in collaboration w ith the patient and caregiver.

**Implements treatment plans by providing direct patient care, procuring necessary equipment/adaptive devices, instructing and training client and caregiver concerning exercises, activities of daily living, rehabilitation techniques, and equipment/adaptive devices. Recommends community referrals when needed.

**Reassesses patients' levels of functioning and home environment, revising the treatment plan as indicated and terminating treatment objectives when met and/or the patient has achieved maximum benefit from PM&RS.

**Evaluates the home for structural or positional changes in order to promote the patient's safety and independence.

**Develops and coordinate educational materials for the caregiver of the veterans indicated by the PT assessment and Joint Commission home care standards.

**Participates in HBPC Performance Improvement Program, including completing assessment and documentation required by performance measures applicable to the PT's role.

**Serves as content expert in ordering complex and specialized medical equipment.

**Participates in interdisciplinary team conferences.

**Serves as consultant to other professionals in the evaluation of patient with multiple and complex problems in the home, for which highly specialized knowledge and skills are required.
