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.

TRACS WA have always been responsive to training requests from people working in health services across WA. In the past few years, there has been a growing number of clinicians who work in subacute care / rehabilitation who have attended our Older Adult Mental Health module. There is definitely a growing need and understanding of co-morbidities that exist in our patients where a holistic approach to care is essential.

Sessions are monthly via GotoWebinar on Thursday's from 12:30-13:30.  
April 22nd Session is on Personalised walking plans and walking groups and Heart Foundation Resources.

March 25th session Part 2 or Chronic Heart Conditions: Programs and Pathways Presentation: Management of Cardiovascular Conditions

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.

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. 

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.
