The conference was co-hosted by the South African Phoenix Rehabilitation and Prevention group and the European Burn Association at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and brought together an inter-disciplinary team of experts and practitioners in the field of paediatric burn trauma. The main theme of this joint workshop was centred on learning exchanges and sharing of experiences and best practices in the prevention and rehabilitation of burn injuries. The conference was initiated with an orientation visit of conference delegates to surrounding Cape Town townships to illustrate, first-hand, the particular resource and safety challenges faced by South Africans. The tour also included visits to the Red Cross Burns Unit and St Joseph’s Home for Children to showcase the medical and long-term care provided for paediatric burn victims.
