Cutting edge burns management: Fiona Wood at DFTB18


Professor Fiona Wood, AM, is one of the worlds leading burns surgeons.  Having qualified from St Thomas’ in London she decided to do what so many of us do and move down under. Since the early days of her career she has recognised that to improve the outcomes of burns victims involves not just scarless skin, but also healing in mind and spirit. Along with Marie Stoner she pioneered the use of ‘spray-on skin’ and is well known for the care she provided to the victims of the Bali bombings back in October 2002.

In this talk she talks about the past, the present and the future of burns care whilst championing the roles of women in medicine and surgery. As a mother of six children she reminds us all that there is nothing that cannot be achieved if you ask for it.
