Ethics Talk: How to Help Burn Patients Survive and Thrive - An Interview with Dr. Monica Gerrek and Andrea Rubin


A patient with a severe burn injury doesn’t just need physical care and support to recover – suffering such injuries can also create significant psychological and emotional challenges. This month on Ethics Talk, we sit down with Dr. Monica Gerrek, a burn ethicist, and Andrea Rubin, a burn survivor, to explore how burn teams can support patients’ autonomy in the aftermath of their injuries. We also discuss the need to provide comprehensive and interdisciplinary care that responds to each individual patient.
