As part of the State of Science Meeting, care in elderly was one of the foci. This “white paper” deriving from this meeting indicates advances in the field of burn injuries in the elderly but more importantly areas that are in need of novel insights and investigations. The group created specific segments of a patient’s course pre- and postinjury to selectively identify specifics we need to improve on. Tasks were created that were assigned to volunteers of the group and are given in detail in this article. The overarching aim is to initiate substantial momentum among the members of the American Burn Association to improve the outcomes in the elderly burn patients.
