Advanced Burn Life Support Provider Course March, 2019
Advanced Burn Life Support
Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) programs provide knowledge for immediate care of the burn patient up to the first 24-hours post injury. ABLS programs also support emergency preparedness and mass casualty incidents focusing on triage, burn survivability, prioritizing transport of patients and patient treatment.
The audience for the ABLS program is anyone who may come into early contact with a burn injury. This includes fire fighters, EMTs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, emergency physicians and nurses, pediatricians and pediatric nurses, first responders, military personnel and many others.
Advanced Burn Life Support Provider Course
This live, hands-on is designed to provide the “how-to” of emergency care of the burn patient through the first 24-hour critical time period. Following a series of lectures, case studies are presented for group discussions. An opportunity to work with a simulated burn patient to reinforce the assessment, stabilization, and the American Burn Association transfer criteria to a Burn Center will be provided. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment.
The registration fee covers the course tuition, the ABLS ProviderManual, written and practical examination, continuing education credits and a certificate of completion.
This is an eight-hour course designed for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, and first responders.
