Paediatric Scald Prevention Sept 2013

This conference aimed to help make it clear about ‘what matters’ in preventing serious burns and scalds among young children. The epidemiological data came from iBID which included the main causes of such injuries, their impact and who are most at risk. Other presentations focused on up-to-date methodology of ‘what works’ – the most effective ways to reduce deaths and serious injuries caused by burns and scalds. The intention was for workers in prevention to pick up ideas and strategies.
