Common TRAK Shortcuts

Trak has a large number of shortcuts that insert a template of text that you can then edit – these are really useful for saving you time and ensuring you don’t miss something.

Many of the Trak shortcuts are specific to certain clinical areas, and you should be told about these when you receive your local induction to that ward or unit. You can also ask the doctors you are taking over from for the ones that are most useful to them.

The following is a list of commonly used shortcuts that are useful wherever you are working, as chosen by current FY1s.

To use them just type them in the patient notes text box, then hit the <Spacebar> key.
