Octave has developed a Nurse Care Partner Program to assist providers with caring for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS). Most of what a person with MS (PwMS) experiences happens outside of the office visit. Octave’s Nurse Care Partner program’s goal is to lessen the burden of managing the disease both for the PwMS and the Advanced Care Provider/MD (MD) by providing nursing support in between office visits. By doing this Octave hopes to improve outcomes for all involved. This position requires a balance of clinical knowledge, organizational skills, and empathy for those living with MS.

This position offers a unique and exciting opportunity to participate in cutting edge technology tying together direct nursing interaction with PwMS, new MRI technology and blood-based biomarkers in a way that has never been done in the field of MS and will change lives for the better. Your impact will be felt immediately! The Nurse Care Partner (NCP) will directly support the PwMS using technology-based video calls and interaction with an App under the guidance of MD’s standard of practice. They will directly interact with the MD to offer real time feedback as well as reporting on progress of PwMS as they live with and accomplish goals set by MD. The NCP will serve as a resource for PwMS in obtaining information and education as well assist with answers to questions and support through their journey as they live with MS. Come join our amazing team as we strive to improve the lives of those living with neurodegenerative diseases.
