The regional burn conferences provide great opportunities for multidisciplinary burn care professionals to participate in table top discussions, explore educational opportunities, earn CEUs and network with other burn care colleagues, and exhibitor partners in a more intimate setting.
The ABA staff and ABA President, Dr. Steven Wolf, met over 1500 attendees during each of these 2018 meetings, learning more about ABA member needs and discussion of the ABA programs: ABLS, Verification, Quality, Research, Membership, and Advocacy.
Dr. Wolf’s ABA Presidential Keynote Address, Game Theory in Burn Care, defined Game Theory, described how this concept relates to the care of the burn patient, and explained how to implement this theory into practice. Participation from many took place during a wide variety of sessions on topics such as Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS), disaster planning and preparedness, lasers and burns, innovations in wound care, Fire Fighter and first responder presentations, top posters, pro-con debates, and exhibitor partner networking.
