Last modified by Doug Maynard on 2017/06/01 14:59

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.

We 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
