MEASURING FUNCTIONAL OUTCOME IN PAEDIATRIC PATIENTS WITH BURNS: METHODOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS Research in the field of paediatric burns is subjected to wide criticism. Many quasi-experimental research designs have been employed to consider the impact of damage such as scarring and reduced range of motion on subsequent functional performance. These studies have mainly used a narrow definition of functioning (e.g. school attendance) to assess a child's degree of participation in post-burn

This review paper from Australia utilizes a conceptual model of functional outcome based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health in order to outline the state of the art in research literature. It also presents explanatory case study methodology as an alternative research design in order to advance even further the study of the functional outcome of postburn injury.
