Dan’s Fund for Burns, recognising the potential value of the Burns Game, an innovative game for hospital staff, developed by Focus Games Ltd in partnership with the British Burn Association and Birmingham City University, is donating one copy of the game to each of the 26 Burns Units in the UK (both large and small). It is hoped that this game can add extra challenges for Burns Unit staff by making learning fun to deliver a deeper understanding of the many complex issues involved with burn injuries.
