Trauma-informed care practices are associated with a culture of safety following traumatic experiences, including medical trauma. An interactive, web-based training package ('Responsive CARE') was developed for voluntary uptake by paediatric burns health professionals to increase staff knowledge about trauma-informed practice. This paper reports on a mixed methods process evaluation conducted alongside a preliminary effectiveness study of 'Responsive CARE'. The process evaluation was conducted using The Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research (CFIR) and a logic model, to examine feasibility of both the intervention and implementation strategy...

Approximately 120,000 children in the United States are evaluated in the emergency department annually due to burn injuries. Studies have consistently documented that pediatric burns are among the most stressful events for caregivers, resulting in a wide range of emotions, including guilt, anxiety, grief, depression, and posttraumatic stress symptoms, as well as positive psychological changes, a phenomenon known as posttraumatic growth. The present pilot study aimed to explore the prevalence of elevated perceived stress as well as posttraumatic growth among caregivers of pediatric burn patients receiving outpatient burn care and using an mHealth burn platform to administer burn treatment...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Kristine Hoang, Austin Ly, David Hill
After acute burn injury, patients experience a hypermetabolic state often complicated by a stress-induced hyperglycemia. Recent research points towards glycemic variability as a contributing factor in adverse outcomes in critically ill patients. In burn patients, greater glycemic variability has been associated with increased rates of mortality and sepsis. However, no studies to date have examined the impact of glycemic variability on rates of infection in this population or determined which measure may be most useful...
