Spaulding is designated as one of the nation’s four Burn Model Systems and dedicated to improving the lives of burn survivors. We strive to provide the highest level of comprehensive burn care, beginning at the time of injury and extending through rehabilitation and eventual re-entry into community life. We are committed to conducting rigorous research, with a specific focus on the long-term functional and psychosocial outcomes of burn injury. This research serves as a platform for knowledge dissemination and education.
Study published in the November 2019 issue of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation looked at twenty years of burn survivor data and found a strong correlation between access to inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) level of care and better employment outcomes twelve months post injury.
