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.

TRACS WA held its second stroke interdisciplinary online learning event for members of the Stroke Community of Practice.

Barby Singer was delighted to be able to represent TRACS WA at the International Day of People with Disability 2021 event co-hosted by the Disability Health Network and South Metro Health Service. The event was very well attended, both in person and online (see picture).

TRACS WA, in collaboration with the Innovation and Development team at WA County Health Services (WACHS), are facilitating the formation of a WA Stroke Care Community of Practice (CoP).

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. 

Subacute care comprises of: rehabilitation, palliative care, geriatric evaluation and management and psychogeriatric care.

A GoPC form is typically completed by the medical staff during each hospital admission in to inform medical decision-making and limitations of medical treatment in order to provide the most appropriate care for someone with a chronic condition who may experience a deterioration. Non-medical staff also have an important role to play in supporting conversations about preferences and care during their admission to hospital.
