The ABA advocates for research funding and policies and regulations that prevent burn injuries or positively impact patients and survivors. The ABA collaborates with various organizations in these endeavors and works to impact positive changes and improved care of burn patients.

National Leadership Conference (NLC)

The NLC is a forum for the ABA to advocate on behalf of hospitals with burn centers, burn surgeons and the patients they serve. A primary objective of the NLC is for burn center leaders, surgeons, nurses, hospital administrators and others to address challenges in the policy, legislative and regulatory arenas and provide information to key stakeholders to help them understand the impact on patients.
