Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids (TREKK)
Up to 85% of children who need emergency care in Canada are treated in general hospitals that aren’t part of a children’s hospital. These emergency departments may have limited access to evidence-based resources and specialized pediatric training, leading to inconsistent emergency care for our children. In an effort to close critical knowledge gaps and improve care for acutely ill and injured children across Canada, Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids (TREKK) provides instant access to information for those who need it most.
The TREKK Network is connecting emergency specialists, child health researchers, patients and families who share the same goal – improving emergency care for children across Canada. Visit the TREKK website for tools and resources related to pediatric emergency care, including bottom line recommendations and podcasts for clinicians treating children in general emergency departments or videos and story books about emergency care for families.
