Recovery from a Burn Injury is a life long journey. Having seen an increase in avoidable and needless burn injuries our Injury Prevention Team developed an educational video for awareness of the medical and social consequences of burns. The video is an outgrowth of a highly successful Trauma Burn Arson Prevention Program, Straight Talk. This award-winning documentary takes the viewer inside the burn center, on location with the fire department and at home with patients and families. Case study utilization demonstrates burn injuries common to both pediatric and adult population. Courageous struggles by patients and families are presented from admission through recovery. Audience for this comprehensive educational video includes educators, fire departments, parents, adolescents and community agencies. This extraordinary teaching tool can be expanded for a specific target audience. Medical personnel gain insights for the need of early-specialized treatment as well as the emotional struggles encountered by burn patients. Medical professionals, fire fighters, arson investigators, burn survivors and their families present an overview of burn injuries and prevention techniques. The goal of this video is to educate the community regarding fire prevention by utilizing medical and field professionals. Our mission is to educate a large target audience who would not otherwise have access to this information.
