Abstract

Background

Australia’s first programme dedicated to promulgating the teaching nursing home model – Teaching and Research Aged Care Services (TRACS) -- is overviewed and key findings from its national evaluation are presented.

Results

These findings are discussed in relation to the four pillars of the TRACS programme: partnerships between aged care providers and education providers, student education, workforce education and research. The multiple positive outcomes achieved by TRACS partnerships within a very small time frame of 3 years are presented, together with lessons arising from the experiences of 16 TRACS projects.
