About this Event

Title: Saving Lives or Making Monsters? Burns – tackling a neglected global public health crisis in the 21st Century.

The WHO has described burns as the forgotten global public health crisis. In low-income countries and conflict settings, burn patients often receive delayed, inadequate or inappropriate treatment leading to unnecessary suffering, disfigurement, disability or death.

Sian Falder has been a consultant in burns and plastic surgery at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital since 2008. She qualified in Medicine from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School and has a BSc in the History of Medicine. She trained in plastic surgery in Bristol, Merseyside and Australia and holds a Diploma of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Sian is a clinical teacher within Liverpool University. She has held membership of a number of national burn committees and has many publications in burns and plastics. As Surgical Lead for Interburns, an NGO focusing on improving global burns care Sian has worked for many years on programmes in resource-poor countries including Nepal, Bangladesh, Mongolia, West Bank & Gaza, Tanzania and Pakistan.
