Burns information

  • Victorian State Burns Management Guidelines

    The guidelines are a joint initiative between the Victorian state wide burns services at The Alfred hospital and Royal Children's Hospital which aims to provide a more consistent standard of burns management, particularly in the early stages post injury, in order to improve outcomes for those who are injured. The guidelines are based on evidence where available and consensus expert opinion.
