Subacute Care InterProfessional Education resource (SCIPE)

The WA Health Training Centre in Subacute Care (TRACS WA) developed the Subacute Care InterProfessional Education resource (SCIPE) in 2013 with funding made available by Health Workforce Australia.

The resource is designed for clinical supervisors working in subacute care services - rehabilitation, older adult mental health and geriatric evaluation and management. It consists of:

  • an e-learning module for students to complete prior to the placement (Introduction to Subacute Care)
  • five subacute care Modules, including teaching and self-directed learning materials, that can be delivered by a clinical supervisor from any profession in one hour face to face sessions. The modules cover:

    Patient Assessment
    Goal Setting
    Discharge Planning
    Caring for yourself
    Adding Value
