Burns Research Opportunity – Support for Parents

CAR logo

Our friends at the Centre for Appearance Research – UWE Bristol –  are investigating the support needs of parents whose son or daughter has previously sustained a burn injury.  Please help if you can.  See below for more information:

Dear parents,

We are investigating the support needs of parents whose son or daughter has previously sustained a burn injury.  We are writing to ask if you would be interested in taking part, regardless of your son or daughter’s age now or at the time of the injury.

You might or might not have felt that you needed any support of any kind, either now or at any other time since their injury. We are interested to find out whether parents’ support needs are met, not just at the time of injury but also during their child’s recovery and longer-term.

Please help us to investigate this important topic by answering some questions about your experiences and the services you have received, or would have liked to receive.  There are no right or wrong answers to any of these questions – we are interested in your honest opinions, whether they are positive or negative, and whether your son or daughter was a child or an adult themselves at the time of injury. If you are interested in knowing more about what taking part would involve, please read the study information sheet which can be found here: and complete the consent form if you would like to take part. Alternatively you can contact the researcher, Jennifer Heath, using the contact details below.
