Recent Trends in Burn Epidemiology Worldwide A Systematic Review
Smolle, C., Cambiaso-Daniel, J., Forbes, A., et al. (2017). Recent Trends in Burn Epidemiology Worldwide: A Systematic Review. Burns. 43(2):249-257.
This paper examines the epidemiology of burns, including their higher prevalence in lower socioeconomic populations and in less developed communities. The authors explain, however, that advances in social development and burn care mean that burn injuries are causing less morbidity and mortality, especially in highly developed countries.
