Other Names:
  • Young Adult Burn Outcomes Questionnaire
  • Veterans Rand 12 Item Health Survey

Detailed Description:
This study looks to understand previously collected outcomes scores. Identifying young adult burned patients at risk for poor outcomes remains an under-published field of study. We strive to identify problem areas for this population before they adversely effect their quality of life. How are these 19-30 year olds different from their non-burned counterparts and what interventions can we provide to equalize the balance?
