Welcome to the Website of the European Club for Pediatric Burns!
The ECPB is a club founded by four pediatric burn surgeons 20 years ago in the Swiss Alps. Since then doctors and nurses, social workers and therapists meet every year to share their experiences and also their frustrations encountered in burn care, all with the aim to promote and improve comprehensive pediatric burn care worldwide.
On behalf of the local organizing committee, we invite you to the European Club for Pediatric Burns (ECPB) World Congress taking place September 26 - 29, 2023 in downtown Toronto, Canada. Registration is now open.
The ECPB is a dedicated group of individuals who encourage dialogue, and this openness to share ideas is what sparked the formation of this group more than 30 years ago. We will continue this legacy this year in Toronto.
I am personally thrilled to bring this group to our vibrant city. With pleasant weather, warm autumn colours, and fewer crowds at major tourist attractions, we think September is the best time to visit Toronto. More details on our special group rate for accommodation will be available on our website soon.
Taking place at the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning, The Hospital for Sick Children, we will welcome experts to share the latest updates and advances in pediatric burn care across the 4 days of programming.
There will be a call for abstracts in early February inviting podium presentations and interactive posters. The local organizing committee will review and attempt to accommodate all submissions in order to encourage wide participation.
Our website will continue to be updated as agenda and speaker details are added. We look forward to seeing you in September!
