The UTSouthwestern Medical Center in partnership with the Regional Burn Center at Parkland Health and Hospital System will,duringthis five-year project, 1) Assess long-term outcomes of individuals with burn injury by enrolling participants into the Burn Model System National Database, 2) conduct one site-specific research projectregardingaSocial Interactions Skills Training (ASIST), and 3) conduct one module research projectregardingGeospatial Community Mapping. The goalsof the single-site study areto 1) examine the overall efficacy of A Social Interaction skills Training (ASIST) intervention in facilitating community participation and social integration among adult participants with major burn injury;and 2) examine efficacy of ASIST intervention between racial and ethnic minority participants and their White counterparts. The goalof the modular study is to assess spatial distribution of the existing level of social and environmental barriers and facilitators for burn survivors in the community. Theobjectivesare to 1) assess the effect of ASIST intervention on outcome measures in comparison to historical controls; and 2) identify hotspots where more resources should be provided to remove barriers and promote facilitators. Anticipated outcomesinclude 1) increased community integration and social participation in ASIST participants and decreased disparity in CIQ scores among racial/ethnic minorities when compared to White counterparts;and 2) enhanced environment and resources to support burn survivors’ community living and participation. The expected productsinclude educational materials and a standardized and validated approach to social skills training post-burn injury with a validated process of adapting program content according to participant feedback, and a community map highlighting the areas for improvements.
