European Club for Paediatric Burns:  8th World Congress

To be held at the International Convention Centre, Birmingham on 21 - 23 June 2017.

On behalf of the European Club for Paediatric Burns we would like to invite you to participate in the 8th World Congress, to be held in Birmingham on 21-23 June 2017.

We are very pleased that the Congress is coming to the UK this year, having previously been held in a number of faraway destinations including Australia and South Africa.

This is an ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in all things paediatric and to interact with worldwide experts including paediatric surgeons, anaesthetists and intensivists along with the rest of the multi-professional burn team.
This will be an interactive event with new features and ideas that you can take back to your own services, which will be all the better for your contributions.

Abstract submission is open and abstracts are welcome for both posters and oral presentations.

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham in June!
