The physicians and staff of the Timothy J. Harnar Regional Burn Center actively participate in burn and wound care research with the goal of improving knowledge and clinical practices, not only in our burn center, but in burn centers across the country.
Research done at the Harnar Burn Center has been published in 30 peer reviewed publications, our physicians have authored five book chapters, and our physicians and staff have given over 100 presentations related to burns and wounds across the country. Eight abstracts were submitted to the American Burn Association last year – our highest number ever, and the involvement of our nursing and allied health staff with monthly meetings resulted in presentations at regional and national burn meetings.
The Timothy J. Harnar Burn Center is also designated as a Burn Research Center of Excellence.
Patient care is constantly being improved through our research by addressing the following:
- Growing Skin
- Better Dressings
- Improved Rehab
- Better Pain Management
