  1. QOL Quality of Life, P Percentile
  2. Data are expressed as mean (SD) for QOL score and median (P25–P75) for other domains
  3. $P values for within group comparisons were computed using repeated measures analysis of variance for QOL score and after logarithmic transformation for other domains
  4. #P values for between group comparisons at baseline were computed using independent t-test for QOL score and Mann–Whitney U-test for other domains
  5. ##Model1: P values for between group comparisons at 1-month and 2-month after intervention were computed using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) after controlling for baseline measures for QOL score and after logarithmic transformation for other domains
  6. ###Model2: P values for between group comparisons at 1-month and 2-month after intervention were computed using ANCOVA after controlling for baseline measures and confounders (including age, sex, education level, occupation, burn percent, burn depth, and burn cause) for QOL score and after logarithmic transformation for other domains
