Free Health Resources for Families & Caregivers
Have you seen our FREE health resources for families and caregivers?

ECHO Research (Translating Evidence in Child Health to Enhance Outcomes), ARCHE (Alberta Research Centre for Health Evidence), and TREKK (Translating Emergency Knowledge for Kids), have collaborated to create health resources for families and caregivers on common childhood illnesses.

Our health resources provide health information based on the latest research to help parents and families care for their sick children at home. Our resources have been created with parents, caregivers, and health care providers to provide you the most reliable information in a way that’s easily understandable. Watch our videos, browse our interactive infographics, and read our eBooks to find out about common signs and symptoms, how to manage them at home, and when to seek care.

Please visit our websites ( http://www.echokt.ca/tools/ or https://trekk.ca/patientsandfamilies) to see our latest resources and to find out more about what we do!

New LED Lights
Tired of choosing darkness over moldy, retina-burning fluorescent lights? Occupants of the Scott Library’s group and individual study rooms now have a third option. Those who book a room at the Scott will find brand new freestanding LED lights in each of our study rooms. You’ll also notice that we’ve added a few to the lounge area next to our main entrance. Give them a try next time you’re in our neck of the woods.
