We Were Asked to Share Our Voices - Now We Must Respond

Apr 2, 2014

Phoenix Society member involvement is crucial to research work. By bringing together the researchers, care providers, and burn survivors we have had the opportunity to not only understand the challenges in burn recovery but truly address them with interventions/programs that will promote the best outcomes for those with burn injuries.The size of the Phoenix Society membership enables us to address one of the greatest challenges within burn care research—obtaining the number of subjects needed to conduct valid research. The Phoenix Society clearly has a network of burn care providers, survivors, and family members with a breadth of experience and passion for this work that is unparalleled. We are currently working with our partners on several research projects that will benefit from your involvement. We ask that when you receive an invitation to take part, you consider the value of your voice, feel the empowerment, and understand the impact you may have on the future of burn care if you choose to participate. We may not be researchers, but we live with a burn injury every day. We hold the keys to what will help us live the fullest life possible.
