Course content

The clinical management of burn patients has developed significantly over the last few decades. This relates to multiple factors including a better understanding of the pathophysiology of the burn wound, improvements in critical care, as well as advances in skin tissue engineering and burn rehabilitation.

There is a vast range of contradictory practices around the world, and this innovative distance learning degree, recognised by both the British Burn Association [BBA], and the International Society of Burn Injury [ISBI] attempts to fill a void in postgraduate burn care education.
