Wound Essentials 10 (2) Seeking clarity in minor burn management: part 2

Burns | Sarah Holdsworth

Burns injuries pose a significant challenge to inexperienced clinicians throughout their pathway of treatment.

This pathway can continue upto 2 years post-injury and so awareness of scar management techniques is imperative to the care of a patient whether they be treated by a specialist unit or in the community.
