Visiting APROQUEN has been a true blessing; the staff is compassionate, the center is well established and their interdisciplinary team is ideal for the holistic approach necessary in burn treatment. During my visit we worked on techniques to help prevent the formation of contractures and team building activities. It’s been very rewarding to see the staff adopt the new team building concepts and truly realize that their work is made easier because of the help they provide each other. Some would even hug every day before rounds in the mornings! I hope my time here has helped the staff come together as a stronger team as they continue their mission to deliver the best care for the children they serve.
