TRACS WA is in collaboration with the WA metropolitan and country Aboriginal Health Leadership teams to develop a full day training in Patient Centred Care for Aboriginal patients.

Details on our first session for 2021 on Thursday 18th February,
In November we delivered our 22nd CRSP session, with Wendy Dickinson, Heart Failure Clinical Nurse from SCGH, on Chronic Heart Failure, click here for presentation.

It has been TRACS WA’s great pleasure to work with our new OAMH lead, Dr Noel Collins, whose expert input into our learning program has made this full day of training highly relevant to all health providers for people whose mental health is compromised at differing times along their health journey. We invite you to attend our new training program which has received excellent reviews at two pilot sessions.

Innovation Week at SMHS in November was a great opportunity to attend some sessions for inspiration and innovative ways to be, think, plan and work. The SMHS Innovation Hub (Kaartdijin) provides a supportive and collaborative space where dreams can come to life and where passion and drive is championed and enhanced.

Stroke Virtual Symposium
TRACS WA are supporting a new Stroke Community of Practice (CoP) to bring together stakeholders from within and outside of WA Health with a shared passion to improve stroke care in WA across the whole of the patient’s journey. 

During October and November TRACS WA ran a series of thirty-minute toolbox sessions as part of a Fremantle Hospital Service’s continuing education program.
