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.

What to expect at the emergency department

The Emergency Department (ED) is a place where people go for immediate care. Visiting the ED can be scary and overwhelming, especially when you don’t know what to expect. Some hospital procedures have changed due to COVID-19, and we have added specific information related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope this infographic helps reduce stress and helps you prepare.
