The University of Colorado Burn and Frostbite Center actively educates health-care providers at all levels from pre-hospital to hospital throughout the region, from Montana down to New Mexico. The education encompasses all aspects of burn care, smoke inhalation, degloving injuries, soft tissue infections, chemical burns, electrical burns, exfoliative disorders, hypothermia, and frostbite. Educational opportunities provided by our staff range from regional conferences, grand rounds presentations, and local hospital didactics that include CME credit. Education is specifically geared for all members of the health-care team, including physical and occupational therapists, first responders, EMT/Paramedics, nurses, and physicians.
We provide ABLS courses throughout the year, both locally and regionally. The program is the ABA’s premier educational resource for the emergency care of burn injuries. This course provides knowledge for immediate care of the burn patient up to the first 24-hours post injury. ABLS programs also support emergency preparedness and mass casualty incidents focusing on triage, burn survivability, prioritizing transport of patients, and patient treatment. ABLS is available for a wide range of burn care professionals.
