Burn and soft tissue care involves thermal injuries. Care for burn injured patients is often provided by a multi-disciplinary team, which may include surgical care, nursing care, psychosocial support, and pain management. Burn injuries may require long-term management of wound care, pain, scarring, and physical/occupational therapy.

In Alaska, burn injuries are cared for in many clinics, emergency departments, and hospitals. Due to the critical nature of some severe burn injuries, they may require transfer to a state or regional trauma/burn center. Appropriate and timely care for these severe burn injuries are critical to survival and good outcomes.

This ECHO facilitates a multidisciplinary approach to burn and soft tissue injury management through shared learning between primary care providers and interdisciplinary specialists that support patients across Alaska. This ECHO supports an environment of group learning and best practice with the goal of improving outcomes for patients with burn or soft tissue injuries.
