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.

Asthma

ECHO Research and ARCHE, research groups from the University of Alberta, have created an informative video for parents, with tips to help families understand common symptoms of asthma, how to manage symptoms at home, and when to seek emergency care.




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).
