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.
