PURPOSE

The Grossman Burn Foundation has composed this Humanitarian Assistance Manual so that organizations can provide comprehensive care to individuals who are in need of urgent medical care. The types of organizations that have staff or case managers to use this Manual include: cultural organizations, non-profit organizations, government social service organizations, places of worship, non-governmental organizations (NGO’s), and humanitarian organizations worldwide.

This Manual has been divided into 16 separate chapters, with each chapter giving step-by-step instructions on all of the various duties of the case manager, from the start of the case to the patient’s journey home, and with suggestions for follow-up activities.
