It’s our last day in the office until January 2016! Hard to believe. We had such a great year here at LIBRE and we feel so fortunate to end on such a high note. As many of you know, we reached our goal of 600 completed surveys on December 11, 2015. Think about that for a second. 600 individual burn survivors filled out our questionnaire within 14 months! We couldn’t have done it without all of our partners and of course, the burn survivor community. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Looking back on 2015, we made trips to the ABA conference in Chicago, ISOQOL in Berlin, and the World Burn Congress in Indianapolis. We submitted manuscripts based on the project, attended burn survivor support groups, worked with BU student groups to create educational materials, and built our clinical advisory board. All along, we met amazing, inspiring people that have helped make the project what it is today.
When we get back in 2016, we’ll start to build the Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) prototype based on the survey responses we received. We have other projects in the works that will support the eventual goal of our project. Our January 2016 newsletter will come out with lots more information so make sure to sign up now if you haven’t yet!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
