Bruyere CLRI hosts Dr. Kate Barnett, visiting scholar from the Teaching and Research Aged Care Services (TRACS) in Australia

On June 22-23, 2015, the Bruyère Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Kate Barnett, visiting scholar from the Teaching and Research Aged Care Services (TRACS) in Australia. TRACS is an Australian Teaching Nursing Home program similar to the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care. Dr. Barnett has been leading the national evaluation of TRACS which funded 16 partnerships between aged care services, researchers and education providers around the country.

While she was here, Dr. Barnett met with a number of Bruyere’s partners for valuable information sharing on CLRI research and education projects, promising practices, evaluation and knowledge translation. Dr. Barnett also presented a webinar on “Designing Optimal Student Clinical Placements and Continuing Education for Staff in Long-Term Care”.

We look forward to opportunities to work with Dr. Barnett and TRACS in the future.
