Course Description

Burns comprise a major mechanism of injury in children including both accidental and non-accidental injury. Despite the prevalence of burn injury many providers either have not been trained in the care of burns or do not feel comfortable treating burns. Burn injuries can have lasting effects, both physically and emotionally. Burn experts will discuss burn etiology, various treatment options, review recent innovations in burn care and discuss the psychological impact on both the patient and family.
