Accreditation:• Contact Hours: Hours - 7 Description:The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) course is a one-day course. The quality of care during the first hours after a burn injury has a major impact on long-term outcome; however, most initial burn care is provided outside of the burn center environment. Understanding the dynamics of Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) is crucial to providing the best possible outcome for the patient. The ABLS Provider Course is an eight hour course designed to provide physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, paramedics, and EMTs with the ability to assess and stabilize patients with serious burns during the first critical hours following injury and to identify those patients requiring transfer to a burn center. The course is not designed to teach comprehensive burn care, but rather to focus on the first 24 post-injury hours. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to provide the initial primary treatment to those who have sustained burn injuries and manage common complications that occur within the first 24hours post burn. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
