Advancing Burn Care Leads to Better Burn Care
13 Total 2012 ABA Abstracts Accepted for Presentation at the annual meeting in Seattle

The Shriners hospital submitted  13 abstracts to the American Burn Association describing various patient care observations, techniques and procedures, new programs and performance improvement initiatives. We recently learned that all 13 abstracts were accepted  - a 100% acceptance rate!
The abstracts were authored by many different disciplines with diverse experience in abstract writing. This year’s abstracts also comprised a wide spectrum of practical bedside topics ranging from burn prevention, sleep, nursing and wound care, nutrition, infection control and rehabilitation, as
well as describing some of our new programs like the Remember Me program and the Journal Club.  Please join us in congratulating our successful ABA abstract authors/coauthors and let us know if you want to begin a clinical research project in 2012
