TRACS WA Strategic and Operational Plans

The Training Centre for Subacute Care (TRACS WA) Strategic Plan outlines our long term vision and strategic priorities, while Operational Plan is intended to document and guide key practical work priorities and associated projects during the period, enabling regular review and guide reporting. The operational priorities result are actioned through considerable planning, defined milestones and reflective practice, including a frequent staff-led review for each milestone project. This allows for ongoing review of the processes and outcomes and documentation of learning arising from the project.
