Perth Children's Hospital Foundation (PCHF)
The Foundation receives support from the PCHF for the Stan Perron Centre of Excellence in Childhood Burns at Perth Children’s Hospital.
The vision for the Centre of Excellence in Childhood Burns is to be a world leading centre where innovation and best practice are promoted and supported, providing leadership in research and education related to burn injury, from prevention and acute care to enhancing lifelong recovery.
Led by Professor Fiona Wood AM, the Centre will drive and support clinical excellence, research, education and community engagement. Every child and family will have the opportunity to be involved in the journey, discovering the underlying mechanisms of burn injury response and driving new therapies. The Centre will promote staff development, training and exchange to share ideas and expand clinical knowledge to continually adapt and improve clinical care. Research will be integrated into the clinic, providing evidence and new knowledge to inform clinical practice and decision making. Education and community engagement will focus on prevention and first aid in the knowledge that both of these are critical to reducing the burden of burns in our society.
The Centre will collaborate widely whilst remaining focused on the mission of improving the lives of children unfortunate enough to suffer a burn injury.
We are proud of our association with PCHF, the Stan Perron Charitable Foundation, WA Firefighters, and the National Fire Industry Association who support PCHF and the Paediatric Burns Unit.
