Course Description
There are many different types of burn injuries, including those from fire, scalds, electricity, friction, contact with chemicals, and others. The one constant is that people who suffer burns have a desire for minimal scarring and impact to their lives. Emergency intervention is key in returning patients to their lives with minimal scarring and other lasting effects. Burn Series Part IV discusses rehabilitation of the burn patient through a multidisciplinary approach to treat the patient’s physical and psychological needs during initial and long-term recovery.
