ABPC: Advanced Burn Provider Course
November 8, 2018
7:30 am - 5:00 pm
Registration fee: $299
Limited to 20 participants

Target audience: Physicians, advanced practice providers, fellows and residents.

The Advanced Burn Provider Course is a hands-on, simulation course introducing the clinical skills required to assess and manage common complications in adult and pediatric patients with burn injuries. The labs will alternate with small group sessions.
Skills such as wound management, skin substitute selection and placement and
escharotomy will be taught. The goal of the course is to improve the standard of burn care by educating providers with a need-driven curriculum that addresses common deficiencies in burn care as identified in a national multidisciplinary needs assessment. The course is not intended to serve as a substitute for burn fellowship training or situations that require clinical reasoning beyond the scope of today’s content.

Objectives:
1. The ABPC (Advanced Burn Provider Course) will prepare providers through case
scenarios, didactic content, and biomimetic models to properly assess, resuscitate, and
manage common complications in adult and pediatric patients.

2. The hands-on section will:

  • Prepare providers to properly assess and perform common bed side procedures
    such as escharotomy using biomimetic models.
  • Prepare providers to properly select common dermal scaffolds or skin substitutes
    with a hands-on lab and biomimetic models.
  • Prepare providers to understand the costs, indications, and uses of multiple
    dressing options including antibiotic-soaked gauze dressings, silver dressings, and
    negative pressure wound therapy.
  • Prepare providers for advanced wound coverage techniques such as autologous
    cell-harvesting or novel skin surrogates/substitutes.

3. The small group session will prepare providers by covering adult and pediatric clinical
scenarios extending beyond the initial assessment and triage, including:

  • Wound assessment with case images and pitfalls
  • Resuscitation strategies and pitfalls
  • Surgical planning and wound management
  • Inhalation injury
  • Electrical burn injuries
  • Chemical burn injuries
  • Infectious complications
  • Rehabilitation and therapy pitfalls

Southern Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award

Southern Medical Association designates this Live activity for a maximum of 24.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ACCME Accredited

31st Annual Southern Region Burn Conference (only) – 17.5

Pre-conferences

  • Rehabilitation Workshop – 7.0 hours
  •  ABPC: Advanced Burn Provider Course – 7.0 hours
    (ABPC is not the Advanced Burn Life Support program)

Nurse Contact Hours

This activity has been submitted to Alabama State Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours.  Alabama State Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Other Healthcare Professionals
Continuing education requirements vary from state to state. Many national accrediting organizations, such as AAPA, ANCC, AANPCP, as well as state boards, recognize ACCME-approved AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM  and these credits may be used as such toward continuing education requirements.

Upon completion of attendance attestation and evaluation, all non-physician professional attendees will receive a certificate of attendance stating that this conference is certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM . It is the responsibility of each professional attendee to understand the requirements for license renewal.  SMA encourages all attendees to contact their state or national licensing board(s) and/or professional organization(s) to become familiar with their policies for acceptable continuing education credit.

Learning Gap/Needs
Burn care necessitates multiple treatment modalities. Treating burn and wound patients
requires comprehension and application of critical care guidelines from the acute onset of injury through discharge and rehabilitation. The incidence of injuries requiring medical treatment was estimated to be 486,000 in 2015. This educational intervention will bring the latest research findings and best practices of treatment to this specialized team approach care system. Current policies, guidelines, scientific literature, and centralized communication among burn experts are crucial components to address gaps in knowledge and competence unique to burn care and recovery.

Learning Objectives
A multidisciplinary, systematic approach to burn care assessment, management and
rehabilitation is essential for improving patient outcomes and their quality of life. After
participating in this peer-reviewed conference, attendees should be better prepared to
implement current treatments, apply evidence-based practices, execute burn prevention strategies, implement community outreach programs, and be more competent to:

  • Discuss advances in burn research and understand current clinical studies
  • Implement an evidence-based wound management program
  • Describe surgical interventions, scar and pain management
  • Explain infection control, nutritional support and rehabilitation strategies
  • Comprehend positive effects of prevention programs, rehabilitative camps and community re-integration

Target Audience
Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, residents, fellows, occupational and physical therapists, social workers, case managers, psychologists, nutritionists, burn technicians, prevention educators, pharmacists and other personnel involved in burn care.
