CORE-INFO: Thermal Injuries on Children

This CORE-INFO leaflet covers the identifying features of both accidental and intentional scalds and burns, the conditions that mimic intentional burns and the factors to consider when undertaking an assessment.

This leaflet forms part of a series of information leaflets on aspects of physical child abuse based on a collaborative piece of work by the NSPCC and the Welsh Child Protection Systematic Review Group (CORE-INFO) at the Department of Child Health, Cardiff University.
