Learn more about our parent tools:

We have a variety of knowledge translation tools for parents and caregivers on common acute pediatric conditions. These tools are designed to provide evidence-based health information to parents and families to aid them in caring for their sick children at home, and to aid them in understanding when emergency department care should appropriately be sought.

We work hard to engage health care providers, parents, and caregivers throughout our tool development process. Our resources cover topics such as: 

  • Acute otitis media (ear infections)
  • Chronic pain
  • Croup
  • Fever
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Procedural pain (needle pain)

These tools were created through a collaboration between ECHO ResearchTREKK, and ARCHE.

Our strong network of partners and collaborators help guide the work we do. We are grateful for the support from fellow healthcare staff, organizations, researchers, patients and their families.
