The successful advancement of treatment for burns allows us now to save lives of children who sustain massive burn injuries. The purpose of this study is to establish an expected recovery trajectory (recovery model) in terms of the physical and psychological function for pediatric burn patients by assessing prospectively the outcomes of burn children who are treated at the four Shriners Hospitals for Children (SHC) burns hospitals. The study hopes to develop valid benchmarking of outcomes between the four hospitals and therefore, best practices will be utilized. This recovery trajectory will be used as a benchmark for functional and psychosocial outcomes following burn injury.
- Participants in the study complete a series of self reporting questionnaires over a forty-eight month period. There are a total of nine time points during the forty-eight month commitment when questionnaires are given to parent and/or guardian and patients if they are 11 years or older.
- Patients who undergo a reconstructive surgical procedure during their enrollment will fill a set of questionnaires related to the effects of the surgical procedure on their long-term recovery. The surgical procedure is not an intervention because of the study, it is part of their long-term follow-up care after their acute phase. There will be a pre-op and a six and twelve month post-op questionnaire.
- The aim of this study is to develop an expected trajectory recovery model in terms of physical and psychological functioning. Analysis of the data using validated burn specific questionnaires will allow benchmarking of outcomes between the four Shriners Burns Hospitals. We aim to determine predictors of positive outcomes and focus on them as a standard of practice.
