Wound coverings and dressings will be discussed as well as scar management techniques that can also translate to the hand therapist treating non-burn wounds in the hand clinic.
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Identify burn wound characteristics, surgical options, and therapy priorities to promote healing and recovery.
2. Identify major components of hand rehabilitation throughout phases of burn recovery.
3. Recognize the purpose and use of orthotics throughout phases of burn healing and scar formation.
4. Identify biomedical and topical wound coverings that may be useful in treating non-burn hand wounds in the outpatient setting.
