COVID-19 pandemic and the burn survivor community: A call for action

The researchers at the BH-BIMS published this letter to the editor in the journal Burns. The letter to the editor highlights the impact of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) on people with burn injury, including reduced access to inpatient and outpatient medical and therapeutic care, loss of peer support leading to increased isolation, and triggers for post-traumatic stress disorder. The authors also suggest resources for support and education for burn survivors and care providers. The article is available free in full text through PubMed.
