Why Research?

At the Fiona Wood Foundation we are focused on bringing science to the bedside.

Clinical practice, intervention and innovation, driven by evidence is at the core of what we do. 

Our researchWhy Research?

We are fortunate to have a public health system that is second to none anywhere in the world. The Burns Service WA’s multidisciplinary team including surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and clinical psychotherapists have research philosophies embedded in their clinical practice. They are supported by our scientists who are based at the Universities and other research institutes that we collaborate with.
We recruit patients from our State Burns Service to participate in our research programs ensuring we strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for current and future patients.

We support Honours, Masters and PhD students and researchers so the best scientific and clinical talent can develop and maintain their careers right here in Western Australia.

FWF supports researchers, project consumables, equipment and other research costs by awarding grants in a competitive application process. In turn we rely on the generosity of the community, corporates, Trusts and Foundations and competitive grants to fund our FWF grants, our prevention and education programs and our digital innovation. 

Thank you!

With your support Fiona and our team can continue to strive for excellence in burn care.
