Abstract

Treatment of the child with a burn injury is a dynamic and complex process incorporating pediatric physiology, cognition, and emotional development. An understanding of child development and the importance of the family plays a key role in the child's recovery at all ages. An account of a teenager's burn injury is depicted through the voices of the teenager and his nurse. This article explores that experience and provides a comprehensive look at the role of the burn team, family, and community in his recovery.
