Model of care

Published: November 2011. Next review: 2023.

The care requirements of a patient who has sustained a severe burn injury are considerable and complex. The initial period of hospitalisation is lengthy and often followed by many months or years of follow-up care and rehabilitation.

This model of care is the framework for the provision of burn care in NSW. It covers the continuum of care from hospital and acute care through to rehabilitation and ongoing management.

Development of the model included input from medical, nursing and allied health clinicians involved in the care of patients with severe burn injury and burn survivors.
