Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids (TREKK)
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. TREKK launched in 2011 as a knowledge mobilization network through the Government of Canada's Networks of Centres of Excellence Knowledge Mobilization Initiative to address these critical knowledge gaps. They are a not-for-profit network that aims to improve emergency care for children across Canada.
