PIPSQC is pleased to share that CAPHC will be hosting the upcoming webinar, "The TREKK PedsPac: Having what you need at the bedside to manage acutely ill children in the ED," set to take place May 31, 2017 (11:00 AM-12:00 PM EST).


PedsPacs are best-evidence, point-of-care resources for managing critically ill or injured children. These tools are intended to be used at the bedside in community and tertiary pediatric emergency departments across Canada. The available resources consist of both cognitive and instructional aids.

CAPHC will be joined by TREKK Co-Director Dr. Mona Jabbour, who has led this national multidisciplinary team consisting of emergency physicians, intensivists, pharmacists, nurses, and specialists in the topic fields.

By the end of this presentation, participants will...
- Know the rationale for, expected use of, and types of tools included within the TREKK PedsPacs
- Know which topics are currently or soon to be available and be invited to provide input on future topics
- Discuss how the TREKK PedsPacs can be implemented within their hospital ED settings


Most acutely ill and injured children in Canada are managed within emergency departments that are not part of a children's hospital. Difficulties in getting the right resources and training have been cited as barriers to providing the best possible care in these settings. This has resulted in variable levels of emergency care for children within Canada.
Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids TREKK is a knowledge mobilization network established to address these critical knowledge gaps and improve emergency care for children across Canada.
