European practice guidelines for burn care: Minimum level of burn care provision in Europe
Clinical practice guidelines (CPG’s) are currently a regular part of a clinician’s armamentarium in virtually all branches of medicine. These guidelines are constantly upgraded and expanded through the work of physicians around the world. GPG’s in burn medicine also play an important role in successful burn treatment. European Burns Association (EBA) and namely its Executive Committee recognize the value of GPG’s, but have identified duplicity and varying levels of quality in the different national and other Practical Guidelines for Burn Care [1–18].
