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.

Talking to your anxious child about COVID-19

Children and youth who have an anxiety disorder may find the information about COVID-19 in the news and around them especially worrisome. It would be most beneficial for them if information is presented in a calm, structured and realistic manner.  With that in mind, for many children the most reassuring way to manage this information is in conversation and relationship with parent(s)/caregiver(s).
