Burn rehabilitation

Man rehabbingIn burn rehabilitation, we are focused on improved long-term outcomes after thermal and electrical burns.

Current research projects:

  • Exploring electrical injury survivors’ and caregivers’ experiences with social support throughout recovery.

  • Examining new ways to prevent and treat contractures after burns.

  • Exploring ways to better address the psychological impact of a severe burn.
