Burn injury education

The ACI Statewide Burn Injury Service provides education for health professionals in NSW.

The training covers all aspects of burn care:

  • initial first aid
  • assessment and management
  • wound management, dressing selection and application
  • short and long term physical, nutritional, speech and psychosocial rehabilitation.

Full day or half day programs can be delivered by team members from NSW severe burn units; however opportunities exist for smaller sessions. We can work with you to tailor education to your team’s needs. Contact the Statewide Burn Injury Service to arrange education sessions.


These resources can be used to support local burn care education for clinicians and to reinforce clinician learning after attendance at a burn education event.
