AIA Australia has launched a program to help cancer patients beyond their initial active medical treatment.

The RESTORE CaRe Positivum program, launched in partnership with reinsurer Swiss Re and national occupational rehabilitation services provider IPAR, would help members transition from cancer treatment back to wellness.

It would identify the barriers preventing members from returning to wellness and work, and help find solutions to them.

“Our partners and their members have told us that it is often a big adjustment transitioning from the active stage of cancer treatment back into a normal routine,” Damien Mu, AIA Australia and New Zealand chief executive said.

“We provide strategies and expert advice to minimise these symptoms and to support these members back to wellness and eventually to work.”

The pilot utilised the AIA RESTORE CaRe program as a base, and incorporate IPAR’s Positivium wellness coaching model developed in conjunction with Monash University and the New South Wales Cancer Council.

The program also used SwissRe’s experience in delivering rehabilitation services in the United Kingdom.

The Australian pilot was implemented by REST Industry Super, with 100 members currently participating.
