"Excellence is not a singular act, it's a habit. You are what you repeatedly do."
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2015 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), of the Australian & New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA) - the peak body for health professionals responsible for the care of the burn injured in Australia and New Zealand.
Over four inspirational days in Melbourne, 20 - 23rd October 2015, this international forum will connect over 300 burn care leaders and practitioners and provide a setting to meet, learn, share knowledge and experience, and recognise accomplishments in improving burn care.
The theme of this year’s meeting "Quality burn care: The Art and the Science" has led to the development of an innovative program that explores many of the contemporary challenges and advances in burn care. We increasingly recognize the importance of the structures and systems within which we practice in influencing how we practice - what we do - and the outcomes of our treatments; and the Conference programme features keynote speakers who will showcase the best of thinking and practice in burn care, quality improvement and registry science. High quality burn care is quintessentially a team endeavour, and this conference will include the broad range of multidisciplinary sessions which the ANZBA membership has come to appreciate at our previous meetings. The scientific program will be complemented by high quality poster presentations and a trade exhibition promoting the latest in burns pharmaceuticals, medical, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and developments.
We encourage you to make this significant event part of your professional development for 2015 and look forward to welcoming you to the ANZBA ASM in stunning Melbourne this October.
