Advancing the treatment and level of care given to burns and critically ill patients

About our Centre

BTCCRC The Burns, Trauma and Critical Care Research Centre conducts research to advance treatment and care for burns and critically ill or injured patients through world-class, evidence-based, clinical practice.

The research centre was established in 2004 in response to the Bali bombings. The devastation and tragedy of this event focused national and international attention on burns victims and emphasized that there was a critical need to improve the treatment and outcomes of burnt and critically ill patients. The outstanding response from the critical care, burns, and anaesthetics teams of the RBWH and UQ highlighted the skill and expertise we possess in this area.
