About us

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. TREKK is a knowledge mobilization network established to address these critical knowledge gaps and improve emergency care for children across Canada. 

Vision

For every child to receive the highest standard of care whether they are treated in a pediatric or general emergency department.

Mission

For TREKK to be the trusted source for easy access to the latest evidence, best practices, user-friendly resources and discussions in pediatric emergency care. It will be created and used by health professionals and the families they care for. Its work will drive the highest quality health care for children and families seeking emergency care in Canada.

Objectives

  • Empower families to make informed pediatric healthcare decisions
    By creating tools (videos, storybooks, etc) tailored to their needs and preferences
  • Improve care of children in general emergency departments
    Through the creation and sharing of simulation-based training programs and tools for general emergency department practitioners
  • Expand TREKK’s reach
    By developing more evidence-based tools and resources and promoting TREKK as the preferred forum for sharing pediatric emergency care knowledge

We've partnered with health care staff, organizations, researchers, patients and their families to strengthen our network. We are grateful for the following support.
