Specialists at the Victorian Adult Burns Service have reported a surge in burns since Victoria’s stage-3 corona virus lockdown came into effect in March ‚Äď but severe burns occur at any time of the year – and often in rural and regional areas.

The early management of burns sets the scene for patient outcomes: knowing what to do and providing best care makes a huge difference to the patient journey. Take this opportunity to update your skills and knowledge of the management for burn injuries, particularly in the early stages after injury, to improve patient care and outcomes.

Date: Tuesday 8 September 2020
