Trauma Resuscitation in Kids (TRIK) is a two-day simulation-based course. It is designed for health care providers in Canada and abroad who manage pediatric trauma patients, with a focus on the roles of team leader and team members.

The TRIK course is suitable for emergency physicians, pediatricians, general surgeons, pediatric surgeons, family physicians, critical care physicians, emergency nurses and respiratory therapists. It is an accredited Section 1 and 3 learning activity as defined by the Royal College’s Maintenance of Certification Program. We recommend that participants have current certification in advanced trauma life support (ATLS) before taking this course.

What you’ll learn

Starting from primary survey and initial resuscitation, the course takes an interactive approach to managing common and uncommon pediatric trauma cases.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to

  • describe the differences between adult and child pathophysiology,

  • conduct a primary and secondary survey for pediatric trauma cases,

  • recognize, diagnose and manage common trauma-related pediatric injuries,

  • recognize and consider ethical issues related to pediatric trauma,

  • interpret diagnostic images for pediatric trauma cases, and

  • determine the appropriate steps to prepare for the transport of a pediatric trauma patient.
