At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
- Identify burn wound characteristics, surgical options, and therapy priorities to promote healing and recovery.
- Identify major components of hand rehabilitation throughout phases of burn recovery.
- Recognize the purpose and use of orthotics throughout phases of burn healing and scar formation.
