The BBA Prevention Committee is made up of Association members and representatives of charities, government departments and commercial groups that have an interest and involvement in burn injury prevention. The links between the Committee and groups involved in prevention grow steadily, improving the communication and access to information necessary to the process of prevention. International links develop apace.
The Prevention Committee meet twice each year, at the Annual Scientific Meeting and again six months later. The agenda for the meetings being dictated by events and long term interest in the prevention of the major causes of injury: scalds, clothing fires and self harm.
The first national British Burn Association (BBA) Prevention Meeting took place on Friday 20th May at Birmingham Council House hosted by the Lord Mayor and organised by Dr Amber Young, BBA Prevention Lead.
