TRACS WA host a number of Communities of Practice (CoPs) which bring together people who share a passion, concern or common interest in a health care topic, in order to discuss, learn and organise activities. We have five regular active CoPs.

Goals of Patient Care
The Department of Health has been working with the Australian Digital Health Agency aiming to increase the use of Advance Care Planning (ACP) documents and Goals of Patient Care (GoPC) clinical documents in the My Health Record (MHR) system to improve the availability of these documents at point of care.

Over the past 18 months we have delivered many of our training modules remotely. The format which involves our presenters being here at Fremantle hospital, and then video conferencing to groups at a remote site, has been very successful. 

TRACS WA are in the process of developing a new training module on ‘Trauma Informed Care’. This module is being developed based on feedback from health consumers and clinicians that sometimes there is more going on for health consumers (patients) than is immediately apparent from their presenting condition.
