Annual Conference


The North American Burn Society (NABS) is a multidisciplinary professional society in which physicians, scientists, burn care practitioners, and other allied health professionals meet in an atmosphere that encourages interchange of ideas and promotes friendships.  NABS provides an intimate and relaxed forum for the presentation of topics pertinent to all members of the burn and wound care team.  NABS is the ideal forum for the young investigator.  Educational sessions are conducted early in the morning and reconvene in late afternoon to allow ample time for learning, skiing, and other recreational activities.


All members attending the annual conference are expected to present on a topic relevant to burn care.* Presentations should last 15 minutes each and will be followed by a robust question and answer session. The following topics of burn care are encouraged:

                     •  Critical Care                                           •  Wound

                     •  Nursing                                                   •  Reconstruction

                     •  Nutrition                                                  •  Rehabilitation

                     •  Outpatient Burn Management               •  After care
