The Southern California Regional Burn Center (SCRBC) of the Los Angeles County + University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center will create the Southern California Burn Model System (SCBMS) for a five-year project with key stakeholders. This will be a collaboration between the SCRBC, the Wellness Center (an umbrella organization of community organizations), the Creative Media and Behavioral Health Center of USC, and burn survivors and their families. The goal of the project will be to help socioeconomic and disadvantaged members of our burn community in recovery and rehabilitation. The objectives of this project will be to 1) recruit at least 40 participants annually to the Burn Model System National Database (BMSNDB) with a focus on disadvantaged socioeconomic and minority groups, 2) study the effects of fractional CO2 laser therapy (FCL) on patient reported outcomes and effects on burn scars, 3) to disseminate information to key stakeholders in the community, 4) to collaborate with other Burn Model Systems (BMS) and other agencies on module projects, and 5) creating new research and information for stakeholders. Outcomes of the project include: 1) better representation of minority and underserved patients in the BMSNDB, 2) creation of new knowledge of FCL therapy for providers and community members, and 3) a better understanding of the challenges of disadvantaged patients in burn recovery. The expected products include peer support groups, manuscripts on new research and discovery, informational factsheets, and videos.
