COMPASS Toolkit for home care workers

COMPASS Toolkit Preview

Home care workers often lack access to training, ergonomic tools, and peer support, which puts them at greater risk for injuries and mental and physical illnesses. COMPASS is an evidence-based toolkit where home care workers learn together, set-goals, and get support for making changes to improve their safety, health and well-being. Contact schucker@ohsu.edu to gain access to COMPASS preview materials. Program is available at no cost.
