This 8-hour hands-on course is designed to provide the "how-to" of emergency care for the burn patient through the first 24 hour critical time period. 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 provided. Testing consists of a written exam and a practical assessment.
