Background

The South Western Hospital, Chongqing, has a local burns registry collecting data on all major burns injuries. This project aimed to compare and combine this local registry with the Bi-National Burns Register of the Australian and New Zealand Burns Association to make the two registries compatible so that it formed a large comparative basis for ongoing research into new treatments and further collaboration between the two nations.

 

Key Objectives & Outcomes

The purpose of this project was to establish a data collection methodology at The South Western Hospital, Chongqing and use initial data for comparative studies. Results were presented at The 81st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australasian College of Surgeons, Kuala Lumpur, May 6-10, 2012.
