iBCS Review

The international Burn Care Standards (iBCS) are not intended to be static and unchanging over time. However there is a clear need for any changes to be carefully considered to ensure there is data consistency. This allows burn services to see how their own performance against the international Burn Care Standards (iBCS) changes over time with repeated assessments, whether these are self assessments are done by external assessors.
