Actionable outcomes for workers using prescription medication where substance abuse has been identified.
When a drug or alcohol screen triggers a non-negative result, it can be a stressful time for the worker and the organisation. Knowing how to proceed and what steps to take is critical to ensure all parties are safe and compliant with appropriate legislation.
When a non-negative result is given, this is not enough to confirm the presence of substance, so Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry or GCMS is required to remove any ambiguity of the results.
Interpretation of GCMS output is a highly specialised and niche area of expertise, so the engagement of MRO services is critical to ensure the validity of the results. The implications for all parties can be far reaching, and often may not be connected to illicit substance. Upon request a Phoenix Occupational Medicine Medical Review Officer will review and interpret the GCMS results.
Phoenix Occupational Medicine provides MRO services to organisations throughout Australia in a consultative approach, to provide actionable outcomes for workers using prescription medication or where substance abuse has been identified.
Our doctors are certified by the Australasian Medical Review Officers Association (AMROA) to confirm and manage those workers who may be affected by substance abuse disorders.
Our Medical Review Officers have an extensive knowledge and understanding of drug and alcohol management practices, including:
Identify. advise. assist.
