Due to the current situation regarding the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), the ANZBA Board decided to cancel all Australian & New Zealand EMSB courses, events, workshops and face-to-face meetings for March, April, May , June, and July.
Some courses will resume:
EMSB Christchurch – 15th August – cancel due to NZ Covid restrictions

Unfortunately no Burns Rehabilitation Courses have been scheduled for the remainder of this year.
The ANZBA Conference in Perth (previously scheduled for 13-16 October) has been postponed until October 2021.
We felt it necessary to take this step given the unfolding situation in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our priority is the health and safety of our Burns staff.
We are complying with advice and instruction from our governments and local hospital protocols restricting flights and meetings.
We face challenging times ahead, but we are doing everything we can to ensure that we keep the welfare of our many stakeholders at the forefront of what we do. We will keep you updated as we find out more.

Keep safe and thank you for your patience and understanding.
ANZBA President & Board
The Burn Registry of Australia & New Zealand has established itself as a world-leading repository for burns data capturing epidemiological, quality of care, and outcome data for adult and paediatric burn patients across Australian and New Zealand burn units.
The Emergency Management of Severe Burns course teaches how to recognise, assess, stabilise and transfer the severely burnt patient.
ANZBA is an exciting, diverse Association that brings together burns clinicians so that the benefits of professional knowledge exchange can be realized in our continual striving to improve standards of care for burns patients
Welcome to the Australian and New Zealand Burn Association. ANZBA is a not for profit organisation and the peak body for health professionals responsible for the care of the burn injured in Australia and New Zealand.
Significant burn injury is a distinct and important component of the overall burden of injury. Burn injuries range from the most minor and common of wounds, dealt with in the community, to the most severe and devastating of injuries. There are approximately 50,000 burns related hospital admissions in Australia per year. Over 2500 patients per year are managed in the 17 specialist burn centres across Australia and New Zealand.
The Australian & New Zealand Burns Association is dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by burn injury in Australia and New Zealand by encouraging higher standards of patient care through education, performance monitoring and research. ANZBA and its multidisciplinary members seek to engage the public to promote community awareness of burn injury prevention.
