The one meeting a year that allows direct information among all the burn team members. The design provides an opportunity for team members to obtain ABLS certification, for young therapists to learn from the masters in their field, and for all attendees to gain knowledge from the Leadership in a unique, low-pressure environment. A very well organized, highly efficient meeting that is always a – ‘must’ – on my list.
