Hello, my name is Alexandra Dionisopoulos. I’m working on a summer project with Dr Eddy Lang in Calgary to identify online resources for the emergency care of children. I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from McGill University and will be starting medical school in the fall, hoping to pursue a career in pediatrics.

The overall objective of the project is to develop and evaluate an online library of high quality, evidence-based resources that can support health care providers caring for children in community emergency departments. The TREKK Needs Assessment is identifying the knowledge needs of health care providers working in general emergency departments across Canada. This Needs Assessment, along with the work from the prioritization committee, is guiding which online resources to search for. 

The evaluation will consist of a screening process, drawn from the Health On the Net quality assessment tool.  I will then be gathering feedback from clinicians in the TREKK network on how useful the resources are.

 I look forward to working with the TREKK team. If you have any comments or questions about the project, feel free to get in touch at trekk@mich.ca
