Advances in burn care have greatly reduced mortality, necessitating standardized outcome measures for function and quality of life. This chapter discusses outcome measures that are most commonly used or that have been validated. Outcome measures are presented according to time after burn injury (short- and long term). Measures are also presented for biological/physical outcomes, psychosocial outcomes, paediatric-specific outcomes, and limb-related outcomes. The chapter concludes with a description of common single variable outcomes such as mortality rate, pain, and length of hospitalization.
