Fire Safety and Burn Prevention Knowledge and Practice Assessment

What: The ABA Burn Prevention Committee has requested that all burn center staff complete a fire safety and burn prevention knowledge and practice assessment. Thank you to all those who participated in this survey.

Why: Results will be used to guide professional development training and education of burn professionals on fire safety and burn prevention. Findings will also guide creation of supplemental patient and family education materials that can be used by your burn center.

The primary goal of this project is to increase fire safety and burn prevention knowledge of burn center staff and to augment patient/family education. Therefore, correct answers and rationale to questions will be provided via the ABA website once the survey has closed.

Secondary goals include evaluating the fire safety and burn prevention practices of burn center staff and to assess whether knowledge correlates to an individual's practice at home.
