Pediatric Acute Care Education
Trauma Resuscitation in Kids
Trauma Resuscitation in Kids (TRIK) is a two-day simulation-based course. It is designed for health care providers who manage pediatric trauma patients, with a focus on the roles of team leader and team members.
This is an excellent course for physicians that may not see pediatric trauma regularly!
The TRIK course is suitable for emergency physicians, pediatricians, general surgeons, pediatric surgeons, family physicians, critical care physicians, emergency nurses and respiratory therapists.
TRIK 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 certification in and/or knowledge of advanced trauma life support (ATLS) before taking this course.
