Updates & Information

We would like to invite you to participate in the Rehabilitation-focused Practice Guidelines Development Workshop. This workshop is designed to train participants who are interested in practice guideline development for burn survivor rehabilitation. It will provide them with an opportunity to become proficient at critiquing research articles through staged, hands-on exercises. Workshop participant numbers will be limited and selected on the basis of their interest in rehabilitation related issues and their commitment to participate in future practice guideline development projects. Preconference preparatory activities will be required.
