Opinion piece: It's time to invest in children's emergency care

Are we ready to commit nationally to emergency care for children?  

When a child is sick or injured, our health system usually delivers excellent care.  That’s good news.  Yet the adage that “children are not small adults” – and have specific medical needs – reflects the challenge still facing most Canadian emergency departments.

Check out the TREKK opinion piece that was published in the Winnipeg Free Press and Policy Options. Written by TREKK Network Director, Dr. Terry Klassen, and KT Coordinator, Leah Crockett, the piece discusses the gaps in children's emergency care and the importance for more funding.

New resources on intussusception

How is intussusception best managed in children?

We've added two new resources on the management of intussusception in children to our Evidence Repository. 

The first resource is a systematic review on intussusception management in children, conducted by the Cochrane Colorectal Cancer Group. Check it out here

The second is a plain language summary of the Cochrane review itself. You can find it here

Manitoba Metis Federation donates $50,000 to TREKK

On July 6, the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) presented a generous donation of $50,000 to the Children's Hospital and the TREKK Network. In May, the MMF held a Night to Remember Gala in support of TREKK and resources for patients and families. We are grateful to the MMF for supporting the delivery of the right resources and training for all children in emergency departments across the country, no matter where they live – urban, rural, or remote.
