This Literature Review forms one component of the national evaluation of the TRACS Program which was commissioned in late 2012 by the then Department of Health and Ageing, now the Department of Social Services. The review builds on earlier work undertaken for the Department by WISeR to provide research and analysis to inform the implementation of what was termed at that time the Teaching Nursing Homes Initiative. The Scoping Study Project began in early January 2011 and was completed at the end of March 2011 and it involved a focused review of the national and international literature on the 'teaching nursing home' model.
