Allergy & asthma resources for parents
Posted by TREKK member on March 13, 2017

Parents, we have a new resource for you! Check out the Children's Allergy & Asthma Education Centre – a program of the Department of Pediatrics & Child Health at the Children's Hospital of Winnipeg. The CAAEC provides online and in-person education to children and their families about food allergies and asthma. Check out the CAAEC here.


Most acutely ill and injured children in Canada are managed within emergency departments that are not part of a children’s hospital. Difficulties in getting the right resources and training have been cited as barriers to providing the best possible care in these settings. This has resulted in variable levels of emergency care for children within Canada.
