About the Burn Engine
What is "Burn Engine"?
Burn Engine is a website dedicated to advancing the practice of burn survivor rehabilitation.
Why was it created?
The perceived need for this website evolved from a pilot project that examined the learning needs of a group of occupational and physical therapists working with burn survivors.
What are the objectives of the Burn Engine?
- To offer occupational and physical therapists working with burn survivors a point-of-care opportunity to interact with colleagues from other regions and settings (Discussion Group).
- To provide information on the actual practices used by occupational and physical therapists for burn survivor rehabilitation in Canada (Canadian OT/PT Practice Profile).
- To bridge the gap between knowledge translation of research findings and actual clinical practice by providing clinicians with web-based links (Links), current information about burn survivors rehabilitation interventions, and access to resources.
Who developed this platform?
The website team includes researchers, academics, and clinicians who have a specific interest and/or expertise in burn survivor rehabilitation or knowledge translation. The knowledge translation expertise on which this site was build was developed by a research group at McGill University lead by Nicol Korner-Bitensky.
