Patients and Families

We have a variety of knowledge translation tools for parents and caregivers on common acute childhood conditions. These tools are designed to provide evidence-based health information to parents and families to help them care 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. 

The information provided on TREKK.ca is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between a patient and their own physician or healthcare provider.

Anaphylaxis

The Canadian Anaphylaxis Action Plan for Kids (Kids’ CAP) is a tool to educate children and caregivers about anaphylaxis. The main focus of this tool is to answer two questions: 1) How to recognize the symptoms of anaphylaxis; 2) What are the appropriate treatment steps of a child experiencing an anaphylactic reaction. The action plan document was developed by a research team at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) in 2015 and include validated pictograms with written instructions that are easily understood by students at grade 7 and above.




Being the parent of a child with life-threatening food allergies can be challenging. Visit the Children's Allergy and Asthma Education Resource Centre to view a series of videos that provide parent's views on life with a food allergy (accessed online: March 2017).
