Who we are

PERC is a well-established network of health care researchers at 15 Canadian Children’s Hospitals that is dedicated to improving care in pediatric emergency medicine through multi-centre research. PERC has a track recording of producing results that matter. Our network was honoured with a “2011 CIHR-CMAJ Top Achievements in Health Research Award.”


Our Goals  

  • To create new knowledge through research involving clinical and epidemiological studies in pediatric emergency medicine.
  • To mentor new investigators and fellows in developing research projects.
  • To enhance the image of pediatric emergency medicine as a credible academic discipline with its own research agenda.
  • To pool the expertise of researchers and develop cohesiveness between centers involved in the practice of pediatric emergency medicine.

  Dr. Evelyne D. Trottier receives CPS Noni MacDonald Award

The Noni MacDonald Award recognizes an article in Paediatrics & Child Health that has positively affected paediatric medicine.

This year’s award goes to Treating and Reducing Anxiety and Pain in the Paediatric Emergency Department: The TRAPPED survey. The authors examined the availability of pain and anxiety management strategies currently used in Canadian paediatric emergency departments, and found a wide variation. They identified several pain-reduction procedures to address gaps.

Lead author, Dr. Evelyne D. Trottier (Montréal, Que.) is a paediatric emergency physician at CHU Sainte-Justine in Montreal and a clinical assistant professor at Université de Montréal. Dr. Trottier’s primary interests are pain management in the emergency department and knowledge translation. She has published several studies, developed clinical guidelines for the paediatric emergency department and founded EAU: Équipe d’Analgésie à l’Urgence, a multidisciplinary pain management team in the emergency department at CHU Sainte-Justine. She participates in other pain management committees, including the DrépaNoPain group for patients with sickle cell disease.

Her co-authors are Drs. Samina Ali, Sylvie Le May and Jocelyn Gravel. The project was realized in collaboration with Pediatric Emergency Research Canada (PERC).
