Frostbite care in Canada is variable and evidence for current treatments is limited. Initial results from a recent survey by the Canadian Frostbite Collaborative project demonstrate an interest and need for standardization of frostbite care in Canada and the development of a national network to inform best practices, education and research in frostbite care.
We are continuing to collect survey data; if you or your institution has an interest in frostbite care click HERE to participate.
