Compass is a multidisciplinary program to improve self-management and minimise psychosocial risk factors which perpetuate dependence on opioid medication.
Developed in partnership with Kairros, Be Active Health Solutions and Monash University, Compass includes expert medication reviews, evidence-based exercise programs and the award-winning health coaching program Positivum™, with an overall focus on minimising harm and improving quality of life.
The program involves:
- Becoming active again – low intensity exercise to gain postural stability, and pain control techniques to target co-morbidities associated with chronic inactivity
- Improved health literacy and self-management – health coaching to empower health literacy using E-Positivum™ to challenge mindset and set realistic life goals
- Reduction in opioid use – a review by an addiction specialist to ensure safety in medication use and to support the GP in prescription reduction
There are demonstrated program benefits including a reduced risk of opioid overdose, greater engagement in scheduled health appointments, reduction in monthly medication costs and an improved quality of life. Put simply, Compass reduces the barriers to returning to work.
