Advanced Burn Life Support

The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Provider Course is an eight-hour course for physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, and paramedics. 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 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 given. Final testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment return demonstration.

The registration 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.

  • Evaluate a patient with a serious burn
