It is important to focus on community integration, including return to work and school, early during treatment after burn injuries. A careful analysis of the potential barriers to return to activities can help focus a treatment team and provide appropriate support for a return to work or school plan. Psychological intervention is often an important component of a return to work or school plan. Vocational rehabilitation counselors and school reentry coordinators are valuable assets to coordinating with a treatment team and communicating with a workplace or school. A successful return to work or school is often achieved with a coordinated and supportive approach.
