In Quality Care

The American Burn Association (ABA) has released American Burn Association Strategic Quality Summit 2022: Setting the direction for the future in the Journal of Burn Care & Research (JBCR). This paper summarizes goals and outcomes from last year’s Strategic Quality Summit (SQS).

In June 2022, the ABA hosted the SQS. At this summit, participants discussed various elements of quality burn care and shared ideas on future initiatives to advance burn care through small and large group interactive activities. Key outcomes of the SQS included burn-related definitions of quality care, avenues for integrating current ABA quality programs, goals for advancing quality efforts in burn care, and work streams with tasks for a roadmap to guide future burn care quality-related endeavors.

In addition to compiling key information from the SQS, this paper also describes the status of established ABA quality programs as a launching point for future work.
