Advanced Burn Life Support
Held throughout the year at various burn center locations; advance registration required.
The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Courses provide guidelines in assessment and management of burn patients from the scene of the burn injury through the first 24 hours post injury. The courses are open to MDs, RNs, LPNs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, and paramedics, fire service and other emergency care personnel. For more information about the ABLS Course see http://www.ameriburn.org/ or call Elaine Rojas @ (818) 907-4583.
Firefighters Quest has a grant program for 6 paramedics or EMTs from any of the Quest participating departments to attend this course. If you are interested in furthering your knowledge in the early care of the burn injured patient, take advantage of this opportunity. Grants are given on a reimbursement basis – first come, first served!
