Dear Colleagues,

The end of the year 2017 is almost here and once again we are able to reflect on what has been a very busy and productive year for TRACS WA. First of all I would like to thank all the people we have met through our Community of Practice meetings, our workshops, the learning module presentations and video conferencing for their support, interest and wonderful feedback. This interaction with so many clinicians has enabled TRACS WA to develop and explore more ways of delivering the education you request. The needs analysis recently conducted has supplied essential information that will be important in directing us to meet your needs.  Thanks to everyone who completed the survey.

The production of our e-learning module of the SAC Learning program is almost completed and we are looking forward to delivering this in the New Year as part of our move towards blended learning in 2018. The new iSAC program (Introduction to Subacute Care) will also be available in time to support the 2018 student cohorts and new clinicians to subacute care.

Our final two Community of Practice workshops “Supporting Aboriginal People in Subacute Care” and “Parkinson’s Disease” were highly successful with excellent attendance for both and a commitment to further progress education and collaboration in these areas in 2018. We look forward to a variety of topics already suggested for delivery next year.

The Learning Fund will have a new look next year and will be launched in February. We recommend you take a look on the Grants for Training page around this time in preparation for grants you may want to access to support your workplace learning.

Finally the TRACS WA team wish you all Season’s Greetings and look forward supporting your valuable work in 2018.

Best wishes

Chris King
Unit Coordinator, TRACS WA
