Bio Med Sciences was part of an Allied Health Pre-Conference Workshop with the Australia New Zealand Burns Association Congress in Brisbane, Australia on October 2, 2011. The workshop entitled: Burn Rehabilitation: Head & Neck was presented by invited speakers Ingrid Parry, MS, PT, Burn Rehabilitation Research Therapist from Shriners Hospital for Children, Sacramento, CA and Jonathan Niszczak, MS, OTR/L, Clinical Specialist and Senior Burn Therapist from Philadelphia, PA.
The intensive one day workshop was presented to 30 burn rehabilitation specialists from the entire region of Australia and Tasmania. The workshop highlighted critical skills and techniques for burn rehabilitation involving the head and neck and demonstrated recent research and applications using Silon-STS, Silon-LTS and Oleeva for effective rehabilitation treatment strategies. The workshop received an overwhelmingly positive evaluation from the attendees and fostered collaborations between both US and Australian clinicians during the rest of the scientific meeting regarding burn rehabilitation improvements and progression of rehab outcomes.
