Prevention Committee of the International Society of Burn Injury
Our goal is to co-ordinate and promote prevention activities in the global field of global burns care within the scope of One World One Standard of Burn Care
These activities include:
- Primary Prevention. The global reduction in the incidence of burn injury through active and passive burn prevention; with awareness including non-accidental causes of burns.
- Secondary Prevention. The global implementation of appropriate first aid Â and pre-hospital management of burns patients to prevent progression of burn injury.
- Tertiary Prevention. The global implementation of appropriate acute care to prevent the adverse sequelae of acute burn injury.
- Quarternary Prevention. The global implementation of appropriate reconstructive and rehabilitative care to prevent the adverse outcomes from burn injury.
We will endeavour to work with the other committees to move forwards in further promoting and implementing these aims.
