Patients and Families

Our tools for parents and caregivers are based on the latest evidence and cover many common childhood illnesses. These tools are designed to help parents and families care for their sick children at home and understand when to seek medical care. We work with healthcare providers, parents and caregivers from start to finish during 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.




Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that involves two or more parts of the body and happens quickly. Watch this video to learn how to recognize anaphylaxis and what can help mange your child's anaphylaxis.




An anaphylactic reaction, or anaphylaxis, is a severe allergic reaction. Symptoms can start very quickly and it could be life-threatening.    Anaphylaxis is caused by an allergen that triggers an immune response in the body. This is your body’s way of trying to protect itself. Common allergens include food, some insects (like bees or wasps), and medications.




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).
