We have a variety of knowledge translation tools for parents and caregivers on common 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 to seek emergency department care. 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.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a bacterial infection of the urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra). They can occur at any stage of life and symptoms may be different depending on your child’s age. This video provides information about symptoms, when to seek medical care, and how to manage and prevent UTIs in children.
