About the Burn Engine

What is "Burn Engine"?

Burn Engine is a website dedicated to advancing the practice of burn survivor rehabilitation.

Why was it created?

The perceived need for this website evolved from a pilot project that examined the learning needs of a group of occupational and physical therapists working with burn survivors.

What are the objectives of the Burn Engine?

  1. To offer occupational and physical therapists working with burn survivors a point-of-care opportunity to interact with colleagues from other regions and settings (Discussion Group).
  2. To provide information on the actual practices used by occupational and physical therapists for burn survivor rehabilitation in Canada (Canadian OT/PT Practice Profile).
  3. To bridge the gap between knowledge translation of research findings and actual clinical practice by providing clinicians with web-based links (Links), current information about burn survivors rehabilitation interventions, and access to resources.

Who developed this platform?

The website team includes researchers, academics, and clinicians who have a specific interest and/or expertise in burn survivor rehabilitation or knowledge translation. The knowledge translation expertise on which this site was build was developed by a research group at McGill University lead by Nicol Korner-Bitensky.
