The Burn Rehabilitation Program

Program Lead: Dr. Vincent Gabriel

The Burn Rehabilitation program continues to increase inpatient volume and had approximately 1,000 outpatient visits this year. 

The program implemented outcomes from our previous year quality improvement program to facilitate clinic processes and patient flow through the outpatient clinic. 

Trainees from multiple faculties rotate through the clinical facilities in their development. We continue to work in partnership with the Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society and our burn survivor support program. This year we have initiated a project that we hope leads to expanded patient treatment through laser resurfacing of burn scar. 

Our research program continues to be productive, with several publications this year and an ongoing long-term cohort study of burn patients requiring split thickness skin grafting.
