Check out this new whiteboard video on Trauma Care for Community Emergency Departments, created by the University of Toronto Trauma & ACS, Sunnybrook Hospital, SickKids, and St. Michael's Hospital. The video was primarily developed by Dr. Alun Ackery, Dr. Suzanne Beno, and Dr. Kealin Wong.
Most acutely ill and injured children in Canada are managed within emergency departments that are not part of a children’s hospital.

This has resulted in variable levels of emergency care for children within Canada.
