Ms. Frances MacDougall
Too Hot for Tots!  The development of an evidence based early childhood burn and scald prevention program for community educators.

Frances MacDougall, a pediatric nurse, knows first hand the devastating consequences of pediatric burn injuries that often result in long term physical, social, and emotional difficulties for children and their families After working at the Burn Unit at BC Children’s Hospital for many years, she realized most parents and caregivers were not aware of the burn hazards in their home and the serious harm they could cause a child. Frances shares her journey to develop Too Hot for Tots! so that front-line educators would have resources to teach caregivers about this common, serious, and largely preventable cause of childhood trauma.
