It established the moderating effect of burn body parts role in cognitive and post-traumatic stress problems in female burn victims. While analyzing the relationship among the variables, the cognitive problems with post-traumatic stress shows the regression estimates of -1.956 (p-value, .000) which specifies that better cognitive functioning lower down the post-traumatic stress problems. Whereas role of burn body parts increase by 1 unit increase post-traumatic stress problem by .748 (p-value, .000). The findings indicated that more the burn body parts the more the post-traumatic stress problems in the survivors.

Conclusion:The effect of burn body parts plays a significant role on the cognitive and post-traumatic stress problems in female burn survivors.
