Workshops and Symposiums

Symposium on Accessibility and Development of Tissue Products for Emergency Preparedness

In the context of a mass burn casualty event, assessments of national preparedness status identified gaps to ensuring an adequate response, including the ability to ensure a robust supply of human skin and alternative products to treat burn patients.  To examine these gaps in more depth, a symposium was held in May 2015 sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response/Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, and the Department of Defense/Medical Research and Materiel Command. The symposium provided a forum for leaders in government, burn care, and industry to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the current challenges to deliver an effective response to mass burn casualty events, and fostered discussions on potential strategies to address key challenges moving forward.
