A core set of foundational themes are needed to develop the next decade of rehabilitation research priorities to optimize burn recovery. These themes include integrating burn survivors into rehabilitation research, measuring the right things, utilizing technology, learning from other fields of medicine, translating bench research to rehabilitation, harnessing big data, capitalizing on past successes, embracing social media, and expanding partnerships. It is the challenge of the burn care community to utilize these foundational themes to champion the field of burn rehabilitation research.
