Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Secondary effects of burn injury, such as scarring and contractures, impair occupational performance. Home programs (HP), which may include exercises, splint or garment wear, and functional activities, are used by OT practitioners to extend care postdischarge. This study utilized a descriptive survey to gather information from OT practitioners across the US. This poster will describe OT practice patterns for this population.
