EVENT: Breakfast by the Bay with Fiona Wood
|Breakfast by the Bay with Fiona Wood : Burns research 10 years on; what has been achieved?
In October 2002, Professor Fiona Wood led a Royal Perth
Hospital team treating 28 people injured in the Bali
bombings. The scale of burns injuries was previously unseen
by the hospital, and the exceptional situation required
individuals, governments and the private sector to work
together closely in coordinating evacuations and treatment.
During that time, Fiona witnessed extraordinary bravery,
saw incredible acts of courage and was moved by people’s
will to survive. The experience inspired her to drive forward
on all fronts cutting across boundaries and exploring
ground-breaking and innovative research and treatments
applicable in burns and other traumatic injuries.
Fiona has now established the Fiona Wood Foundation,
which is built on the premise that each and every patient
must be given the opportunity to achieve the best
possible outcome by combining current treatments with
At the breakfast, Fiona will share inspiring stories, as well
as her vision for the future of burns treatment: a holistic
approach encompassing community education, clinical,
basic science and population health research to improve
wound healing, and the associated long-term physical
and psychological complications of burns.
