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.

Fevers are the body’s natural response to infection. It can be scary when your child has a fever, but fevers will not hurt your child. This video provides information about how to take your child’s temperature, how to manage their symptoms, and when to seek health care.

This video was created through a collaboration between ECHO Research (University of Alberta), TREKK, and ARCHE (University of Alberta).
