Safety Conference Sep 2010

Following an invitation to contribute to the Safety Conference in London from the Prevention Committee of the International Society Burn Injury (ISBI), a paper workers was presented displaying for the first time the value of combining data from iBID and hospital episode statistics (HES), which is data from all NHS providers searched and filtered to reflect only burn injuries.

Combine the datasets allowed an estimation of the true extent of burn injury admissions in England and Wales with an estimation of the number of cases each year under each of the major causation headings.
