Welcome to Dublin

On behalf of the National Burn Service in Ireland, and as Chair of the British Burn Association I would like to welcome everyone to the British Burn Association meeting which will be held in  Dublin on the 21- 23 June 2023.

The theme for the meeting is Reconstruction, Regeneration and Rehabilitation, which will showcase new technologies and techniques and how they integrate with existing standards of care, while emphasising the need to promote patient centred care focused on reintegration and ensuring the optimal outcome for each individual.

We hope to have exciting presentations from national and international speakers, and of course you the membership, who know the real-life challenges and opportunities in burn care. We want to hear your voice.

On Tuesday the 20th, immediately before the meeting, we hope to have a consensus day to discuss Fluid resuscitation threshold, enzymatic debridement, scar management, wound care, TENS, Care of the frail patient and development of services in low resource settings.

Dublin is a fantastic and vibrant city, with great restaurants, free museums, entertaining pubs and lots of parks. Dublin holds one of the oldest books in the world – the Book of Kells, as well as other ancient prehistoric artefacts and a migrant museum to help trace your Irish family roots. The Dublin mountains are close by, as well as the sea. There are several beaches and marinas in the city, ideal for sailing and windsurfing, and sea swimming.  There are also urban areas with zip line driven water-skiing, canoeing etc.

The meeting will be held in the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, in St. Stephens Green, in the heart of the city. The Gala Dinner will be in the historic Trinity College Dublin.

It is important for us to meet again in person to share ideas and innovations. It is also important that all services are represented in Dublin as we hope to derive consensus on important areas of burn care and we also present the latest Burn care standards.

We hope that you all consider submitting abstracts for presentation and that you will register early.

Ireland is a land of a hundred thousand welcomes.

We look forward to welcoming you to what we hope will be an inclusive, exciting and innovative British Burn Association meeting in Dublin, June 2023.
