- Define therapy dosing and rehabilitation intensity in the burn care setting.
- Identify the factors that impact therapy dosing for burn rehabilitation setting.
- Describe current evidence-based burn rehabilitation practice recommendations as it relates to rehabilitation dosing and intensity.
- Use interactive discussion to identify barriers and solutions to providing appropriate therapy dosing to burn survivors to promote optimal outcomes.
- Describe the theoretical basis for and evidence describing fear-avoidance in burn survivors.
- Discuss the strengths and limitations of potential evaluation tools to determine whether burn survivors are experiencing fear-avoidant beliefs and behaviors.
- Appraise how fear-avoidant beliefs and behaviors are limiting burn survivor’s ability to reengage in activities that they want or need to do.
