What is BRANZ?

The Burns Registry of Australia and New Zealand (BRANZ) is a clinical quality registry capturing epidemiological, quality of care, and outcome data for adult and paediatric burn patients across Australian and New Zealand burn units. The project is a collaboration between the Australian and New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA) and Monash University, Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (DEPM).

What is a Clinical Registry?

The primary purpose of a clinical registry is to monitor patient outcomes and report on the quality of the care provided for a specific medical disease or condition, or for an area or specialisation of health service provision.

What does BRANZ do?

  • Monitor burn injury incidence
  • Monitor burn injury causation
  • Identify objective and verifiable data on treatment, outcomes and quality of care
  • To encourage higher standards of both burn injury prevention and patient care
