In addition, rehab nurses must understand long-term potential physical and psychosocial outcomes in order to provide the best patient education for burn survivors and their families. After providing an overview of the acute stages of burn injury and care, this course focuses on wound care and the prevention of complications while in the rehab setting. This course will provide introductory education on burns in four chapters mostly benefiting rehabilitation nurses.
