The WA Health Training Centre in Subacute Care (TRACS WA) developed the Subacute Care InterProfessional Education resource (SCIPE) in 2013 with funding made available by Health Workforce Australia.

The resource is designed for clinical supervisors working in subacute care services - such as inpatient and community based rehabilitation and older adult mental health services. It consists of:

  • Patient assessment
  • Goal setting
  • Discharge planning
  • Caring for yourself
  • Adding value


Benefits of SCIPE

  • can reduce preparation time for clinical supervisors
  • can increase capacity to take more students at the same time
  • is flexible – students can join or leave the program at any time
  • is free
  • can be used in all subacute settings including inpatient, outpatient, community, day therapy and home based services
