Seeking clarity in minor burn management

Burns | Kristina Stiles

Burn injuries pose a challenge due to the different causes and variability of injury severity. Accurate assessment is a critical aspect of initial burn management. Non-specialist healthcare professionals lack formal education, and have limited knowledge and little confidence in assessment and management of burns. This is further compounded by a lack of consensus from burns specialists on key aspects of burn care.
