The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Provider Course is an eight-hour course for physicians, nurses, paramedics, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, EMT Intermediates and therapists. The course provides guidelines in the assessment and management of the burn patient during the first 24 hours post injury. Following a series of lectures, case studies are presented for group discussion. 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 given. Final testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment return demonstration.

Course Objectives:

  • Evaluate a patient with a serious burn
  • Define the magnitude and severity of the injury
  • Identify and establish priorities of treatment
  • Manage the airway and support ventilation
  • Initiate and monitor fluid resuscitation
  • Apply correct methods of physiological monitoring
  • Determine which patients should be transferred to a burn center
  • Organize and conduct the inter-hospital transfer of a seriously injured burn patient.

Course Fees:
Cost of the course is $350 for physicians and $225 for all other personnel. There is a $50 discount for North Carolina residents.

This fee covers the tuition, manual, study guide, test, and continuing education credits. The ABA designates this continuing medical education activity for up to 7 credit hours in Category 1 of the Physician’s Recognition Award of the American Medical Association. This program also has been approved by AACN Certification Corporation guidelines for 8 contact hours, CERP Category A.

If you attend both the ABLS Provider Course and the 3rd Annual NC Burn Disaster Symposium, there will be an additional $20.00 discount. You must register for the symposium to qualify for this discount.
