Calling all health professionals who work in Older Adult Mental health services! Please save the following date in your diary: 26th of July 2018.

TRACS WA have revamped our OAMH training and all staff are invited to meet with like-minded clinicians to share their experiences and attend our training.

The day will incorporate all four of our Older Adult modules and will be delivered at CC Bennett lecture theatre, Fremantle Hospital inviting attendees from all OAMH services in the metro area providing an opportunity to network with your colleagues.

Module 1. Facilitating Recovery: Person centred Care covers facilitating recovery in the patient/client journey what works well with compassionate, person centred care and leads to good outcomes (recovery focussed care).

Module 2. Facilitating Recovery: Evidence Based Practice looks at the delivery of evidence based quality services, how to measure what you do, implement and evaluate changes and what works well for services to facilitate recovery.

Module 3. Interprofessional Team Building: how to work best in a team, recognising different learning styles, team dynamics, team roles, resilience and self-care.

Module 4. Emotional Well-being: is designed to provide clinicians with an introduction to key skills and concepts to cultivate compassion for yourself and others. To gain a deeper understanding of personal emotional well-being and its impact in enhancing communication and kindness in the workplace to promote: better outcomes in the workplace, better health, better teams, better decision-making, better workplace relationships, better relationships outside work and ultimately better quality of life.

All modules are delivered in a simulating interactive way with the use of case studies, spectrograms and other workshop activities to explore - interspersed with video clips and PowerPoint slides.

Our revamp is inspired by the Dr Suess book “Oh the places you will go” and reflects that the recovery journey is not linear, at times there will be uphill battles and the road may be long and winding. We have received positive feedback about the redesigned learning materials. To register, see details here.
