Invitation to Submit
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The 2021 ANZBA Meeting Organising Committee invites authors to submit abstracts for Oral Presentations and posters.
The ANZBA board and local organising committees have met and have made the decision to move our ASM away from the Westin and to an on-line virtual meeting (with a smaller face-to-face option elsewhere in Perth for our WA delegates, and other delegates that do feel able to travel to Perth.)
Submit your abstracts and join us from October 13-15 2021 for plenaries, free paper sessions and posters covering the full spectrum of multi-disciplinary burn care. Specifically, we will have plenary and free paper sessions on:
- Human Factors & Patient Safety
- Burn care in rural & remote Australasia
- Burn care in low and middle income countries
- Technological advances in burns
- Burns surgery – what will be the next big thing?
- Scar management
In 2019 we posed the question ‘What’s your vision for burncare in 2020?’ So much has happened since then….we have witnessed the unfolding of a global pandemic, millions of people have lost their lives to Coronavirus, and we have all experienced enormous changes to our lives. Moreover, there have been enormous challenges and changes across healthcare during this time – including our own specialty of Burns.
Changing the Focus will allow us to reflect, present and discuss clinical burn care, burns research, education, and prevention in these changing times.
I personally look forward to welcoming you virtually (and face to face) to our meeting in October.
