Advanced Burn Life Support Now

Each year more than 700,000 people in the United States are treated for a burn injury. The quality of care during the first hours after a burn injury has a major impact on the long-term outcome. Yet most initial burn care is provided outside of the burn center environment. The Advanced Burn Life Support ABLS Now© is designed to provide fire fighters, EMTs, paramedics, licensed practical nurses, nurses, nurse practitioners, therapists, physicians assistants, and physicians with the ability to assess and stabilize patients with serious burns during the first critical hours following injury and to identify those patients requiring transfer to a burn center. The course is not designed to teach comprehensive burn care, but rather to provide information that will enable those who only rarely treat burn patients to provide the care needed by a burn patient in the first 24 hours after injury.


The ABLS Now© online learning program provides lecture presentations, as well as case studies.Self-study questions with links to the supporting material in the Provider Manual support the learning process. The learner will complete and submit a course examination at the conclusion of the course. Contact hours and CME credits are available for the course. ABLS Now© certification is achieved by passing the online final exam with a grade of 80% or better. For those who desire full ABLS certification, the hands-on part of the course may be taken at a Burn Center or at an ABA regional or annual meeting.

This continuing education activity was approved by the Emergency Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

The American Burn Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The ABA designates this continuing medical education activity for up to six (6) credits in Category 1 of the Physician's Recognition Award of the American Medical Association. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
