Burn Clinic

170 Elizabeth St., Plastics Clinic, Main Floor

About the Clinic

The Burn Clinic is a specialized clinic that provides interprofessional care to children who have sustained burn injuries. It is led by a nurse practitioner with several years of paediatric burn experience, along with child life specialists, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians and a psychologist to ensure you receive the best care possible. We provide family-centred care and offer treatments and therapies based on the best evidence. 

Pre-appointment Instructions

What to bring: 

  • Any pressure garments, splints or creams you are using to help manage your child’s burns 
  • Any medications required to pre-medicate your child before their dressing change 


Please register at the Plastics Clinic on the Main Floor near Shoppers Drug Mart. The clinic is located close to the University Avenue entrance. From the Elizabeth Street entrance or parking garage elevators, walk all the way down Main Street towards Shoppers Drug Mart. 

What to Expect During Your Visit

Your child may have a dressing change in the clinic. We will do our best to ensure they are comfortable by providing them with medications before the dressing change if we think they are necessary. In addition, we arrange to have a child life specialist present to support them during painful or anxiety-provoking procedures. Other team members, such as a social worker, psychologist, physiotherapist or occupational therapist (specializing in scar management) may visit to ensure your child is receiving all necessary services. The appointment could last up to one and a half hours, depending on what services are needed to provide the best care possible to you and your child.
