Abstract

We read with interest “Driving improved burns care and patient outcomes through clinical registry data: A review of quality indicators in the Burns Registry of Australia and New Zealand” by Gong et al. Revision of clinical registries to update quality indicators, in line with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality Healthcare (ACSQH) principles is important. Reviewing clinical and quality indicators, with a strong focus placed on expert reference groups to articulate and introduce new indicators, appears to be a process that other repositories could use for quality control and improvement. The modification of nine and introduction of eight new quality indicators will no doubt provide stronger reporting for both clinicians and the general Australian and New Zealand public on burns.
