Reading, Berkshire (PRWEB UK) 29 November 2013
At the moment, the centre (working with colleagues at the University of Bath) is investing in research into a ‘smart dressing’, a bandage which helps indicate when infection is occurring. This is essential, as at the moment it’s difficult to differentiate between an infected burn and a normal inflammatory response in children.
The centre focuses on three main areas:
1) The clinical treatment of burns
2) The psychosocial effects of burns
3) The prevention of burns.
The centre prides itself on its multi-disciplinary slant, drawing in experts from the fields of:
- Public Health
The Centre is led by the University of Bristol, alongside the University of Bath, the University of the West of England, Cardiff University and the North Bristol NHS Trust.
Pam Warren is an ambassador for The Healing Foundation who are funding the project, and has a wealth of experience in public speaking, project management and charitable awareness raising.
Her involvement is also poignant on a personal level: having had her own personal problems because of the pains of burn rehabilitation, Pam is particularly cognizant of the psychological impacts of serious burns.
Pam Warren runs an independent project management consultancy and is a public speaker. If you'd like to speak to Pam about project management or the issues addressed here please email pam.warren(at)hotmail(dot)co.uk or call +44 (0) 7768 120 949.
