Abstract

Background: Most studies about burn injury focus on admitted cases. Aim: To compare outpatient and inpatient presentations at burn centers in Australia to inform the establishment of a repository for outpatient burn injury. Methods: Data for sequential outpatient presentations were collected at seven burn centers in Australia between December 2010 and May 2011 and compared with inpatient admissions from these centers recorded by the Burns Registry of Australia and New Zealand for the corresponding period. Results: There were 788 outpatient and 360 inpatient presentations. Pediatric outpatients included more children
