Skin deep video series

The Skin Deep videos were created to help and support adolescents adjust to life after a burn injury, particularly for use in the acute and rehabilitation phases. Self-esteem, self-acceptance and social relationships have been identified as essential for health-related quality of life and these videos aim to address these issues through focusing:

  • Coping with treatment
  • Returning to daily life including school and work
  • Negotiating the future
  • Managing public interest

The video series was made possible with the support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
