LIBRE is an innovative system for measuring a return to life after burn injury.
Attempting to return to everyday life after a burn injury can be difficult, stressful, and emotionally challenging. While traditional rehabilitation strategies for burn survivors focus on physical recovery, LIBRE focuses on the impact burn injuries have on social life.
LIBRE is a computer-based questionnaire currently under development. Once completed, the tool will be used by burn survivors and clinicians to track an individual’s burn recovery, improve rehabilitation efforts and identify areas where additional support is needed.
What is unique about this questionnaire is that it will be:
- specific to people with burn injuries
- tailored to the individual
- focused on the social impact of burn injury
LIBRE is a community.
Throughout the course of this project, we aim to build a community of people interested in improving the recovery process for burn survivors. If you’re interested in becoming involved, check out our active projects. Also, follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with the project!
LIBRE is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research, a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’s Administration for Community Living.
