The 17th Congress of the International Society for Burn Injuries (ISBI) will take place at the Hilton Sydney Hotel in Sydney, Australia from Sunday 12 to Thursday 16 October 2014 . On behalf of the host society the Australian and New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA) I am pleased to invite you to visit Sydney in 2014.
It has been more than 20 years since the 7th meeting of the ISBI in Melbourne in 1986 when international specialists in all aspects of burn care have convened in Australia. We expect to host delegates from all member countries around the world to come together and focus on the theme, “Improving the Quality of Burn Care Outcomes: Managing the Wound and Its Consequences”.
The ISBI and ANZBA will bring together International and Australian health professionals, for an innovative, multidisciplinary congress utilising state of the art technology with electronic posters and smartphone / tablet applications.
A highly regarded, internationally renowned faculty and Australian keynote speakers will share their knowledge and invite audience participation. We look forward to welcoming you to the 17Th Congress of the International Society for Burn Injuries in October 2014.
