Burn Center Education Programs

Format: Variety of formats

USAISR Burn Center Education Programs include:

Burn Management Seminar

A multidisciplinary approach to educate healthcare personnel regarding interventions, protocols, treatment modalities, and research and to address the psychosocial needs of burn victims.

Simulation Workshop

Water soluble hydrogels of alkali metal alginate and glycerine have been found to be excellent wound dressings. The gels dry to an adherent, non-toxic pliable protective film which can be removed by water-washing when desired. The gels are also compatible with medicaments and hence can serve as vehicles or carriers for medicament application to wounds as well as a protective cover.

Training Opportunities

The USAISR, JBSA Fort Sam Houston, Texas, conducts certain clinical activities in which physicians, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, rehabilitative services and respiratory therapy students in the educational program, if allowed to participate, can obtain clinical learning experience. An affiliation under a memorandum will benefit both parties by contributing to the educational preparation of a future supply of health care providers.

Advanced Burn Life Support Provider
