We invite you to join us for our annual regional burn conference. Don't miss this unique forum for oral and poster presentations for all burn care disciplines, at all levels of experience. Our conference theme, "Rally and Share: Best Practices in Burn Care," reflects this great opportunity for sharing and discussing ideas and experiences to optimize burn care outcomes.




This conference is intended for the entire burn team: surgeons, nurses, occupational and physical therapists, as well as specialty members including pharmacists, Child Life specialists, social workers, paramedics and nutritionists. It is also relevant to emergency medicine physicians and emergency room nurses, particularly from hospitals that participate in a statewide trauma system, as well as family and pediatric practitioners who see and treat individuals with thermal injuries and postgraduate residents from these disciplines.


Learning Objectives


A multidisciplinary approach to burn care is essential for improving patient outcomes. At the conclusion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize successful burn prevention education strategies.
  • Apply burn wound care techniques that have proven successful at other burn centers.
  • Implement new critical care techniques performed successfully at other burn centers.
  • Incorporate successful nursing practices from other burn centers.
  • Understand successful research in pain and psychosocial treatments in patients with burn injuries.
  • Share successful quality improvement projects in care of the burn injury patient to develop and improve their own practice.
  • See the conference schedule for learning objectives of individual presentations.
