The SA Burns Society takes great pleasure in announcing the Pan African and South African Burn Congress 2019, which will take place from 3 to 5 October 2019 at the Southern Sun Elangeni in Durban.

The upcoming Pan African and South African Burns Congress 2019 will bring together medical practitioners and burns specialists from all over Africa.

Burns have long been described as the Cinderella of the surgical disciplines, with only the most passionate or dedicated of health care providers seeking out a career in the field to brave the challenges and often devastating outcomes.

A successful outcome for the patient is only secured through a strong, multidisciplinary team. The nursing staff, physio and occupational therapists, dieticians, psychologists, social workers and doctors (emergency medicine physicians, surgeons, anaesthetists, intensivists) each have an important role to play.

Congresses are a superb opportunity for us all to come together to share our knowledge, as well as reignite the fires of inspiration. In 2019 South Africa opens its arms to the continent of Africa to welcome our brothers and sisters in the burn arena to come and join us in the first combined meeting. This offers us opportunities to build new relationships, as well as to rekindle old ones.

When: 3 to 5 October 2019
Where: Southern Sun Elangeni and Maharani, 63 Snell Parade, North Beach, Durban
