Significant physiologic and metabolic derangements occur after severe burns. In particular, the inflammation and systemic catabolism associated with severe burns can lead to nutrient deficiencies and impaired immune function. This is in addition to a markedly elevated metabolic rate and increased demands for wound healing, surpassing the nutritional demands of any other forms of injury. Collectively, these pose significant challenges to patient management. In various burn centres, pharmacological and nutritional interventions have been adopted to improve overall patient outcomes. This workshop will introduce the audience to various pharmacological and nutritional interventions in the management of burn injury patients through a series of lectures and case based discussions.
