Dear Colleagues

It is with great pleasure and pride that I invite you once again to Western Australia for the 2013 ANZBA Annual Scientific Meeting.

The conference team promise to provide an experience that everyone will not only remember but one from which you will also take away valuable new skills in team building. The Perth team have worked hard to deliver a programme that will excite, stimulate and, or challenge each individual to change their clinical practice in burn care. While the meeting theme is Mystery and Magic, the content will be far from smoke and mirrors!

Plenary and scientific papers will be of the highest quality with data driven research the central trait of all presenters' briefs. The wizards of the meeting include Dr David Herndon, Dr Raj Sood and Dr Michael Peck. We present masters of the dark arts - the brain benders: Dr David Butler and Prof Sarah Dunlop. Potion man Prof Stefan Schug will help you make pain disappear. Throughout the meeting, posters will appear like magic with only the cream of the crop to be delivered orally.

The conference dinner - on Thursday night - will see us all transported to Hogwarts. We will rise late on Friday so we can all take part in the session to help us better apply the magic of our burn care teams. Teen-whisperer Michael McQueen will be back to help us unlock the mysteries of the generational challenges in health care delivery.

I hope that this whets your appetite. There are many more surprises in store......I bet you can't guess who will be the mystery guest who will have the last word on Friday?

See you in Fremantle, Western Australia, October 2013.


W. Prof Fiona Wood
Conference Host and Director of BSWA
