The management of Burn Trauma in Children and Teens - a guide for parent and families
Having a child in the hospital with a burn injury can be a traumatic experience. This booklet has been designed to provide patients, parents and families with information on what to expect throughout the different phases of the child or teen’s hospitalization, treatment, and recovery.
Information regarding the spectrum of burn trauma care and the role of the different specialists at specific times in the recovery process is discussed in detail.
Issues related to burn classification, recovery stages, rehabilitation, returning home, school re-integration and outcome are discussed as well.
We hope that as burn trauma victims and families living through the challenging experience they will find that the information responds to their questions and important concerns while preparing them for the step ahead. This also makes it a good tool for healthcare professionals working in this area of trauma care.
