Clinicians attending our Community of Practice events have been asking us if there is any good online platform to talk and share resources with their public and private sector colleagues. TRACS WA is trialling – a Microsoft Teams-based discussion group, accessible to both public and private sector clinicians, to help Communities of Practice continue online between our face-to-face events and video conferences.

Congratulations to TRACS WA advocates and collaborators Nola Naylor and Rebecca Carbone, who won their respective categories in the 2021 Health Consumer Excellence Awards.

There was substantial interest and good attendance for our recent Stroke Community of Practice Virtual Symposium.

On Thursday 25th March, in collaboration with Disability Health Network, TRACS WA co-hosted our 8th CoP meeting. This focussed on enabling discharge from hospital for NDIS participants.

TRACS WA and the Tracheostomy Community of Practice held a virtual education event via MS Teams on the 17th March. We heard from clinicians at Royal Perth Hospital, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Brightwater Care Group.

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.
