About the BBA

BBA Special Interest Groups


Under the umbrella organisation of the BBA, there are a number of Special Interest Groups (SIG’s). Each of these usually meet at the Annual Meeting of the British Burn Association, but in addition may organise on occasion additional meetings, usually educational in nature at different times and venues.

SIG meetings are free of charge to Association Members.  Non-Members attending a SIG more than once are charged a nominal fee.  The Research SIG is an exception as due to confidentiality, participants are required to be BBA Members.  Meeting notes, questionnaires and general correspondence are only sent to BBA Members.

The list of SIG’s currently include:

Burn Dietetics Group

Concerned with the nutritional requirements of individuals with burn injury.

Burn Therapists’ Special Interest Group
