Healing Beyond the Scars: Recovery from Burns (DVD)

Target Audience: Burn survivors, their families and friends; healthcare professionals; and others interested in the process of recovery from burns or catastrophic injury.

Severe burn injuries, because they are sudden in onset and catastrophic in scope, pose special challenges for burn patients and their families. Most families are unprepared for the intensive and lengthy treatment a burn injury requires. Physical recovery may be facilitated by such factors as good nutrition, pain relief and enhanced communication with medical staff. In addition to physical recovery, burn patients experience a series of psychological challenges. Because families play an integral part in the injured person’s recovery, their experience often mirrors that of their loved one. In this video burn survivors and family members describe how they met the challenges of recovery and found unexpected meaning in the process. (22 minutes)

* The Burn Foundation will offer this video free to burn survivors. Please contact us for more information.
