Welcome to BFIRST – British Foundation for International Reconstructive Surgery & Training
BFIRST is a UK registered charity which trains surgeons working in the poorest countries in the world to enable them to undertake reconstructive Plastic Surgery, releasing children and adults from the state of poverty and destitution associated with disability and deformity.
The symposium will focus on the management of common hand conditions and allow an international panel to discuss ways to avoid complications or treat these complications. Participants from different resource-limited countries will also discuss and share how they overcome challenges and allow networking and sharing of resources.

BFIRST is still looking to expand on its educational webinar capacity during the COVID pandemic, we are therefore keen to advertise freely available educational opportunities from other organisations. Of note, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre continues to run a successful webinar series with topics including the conservative management of hand fractures and Wide Awake Local Anaesthesia No Tourniquet (WALANT) which may both be relevant to Reconstructive Surgeons around the world, especially during the COVID Pandemic. These webinars can be accessed here.
