Rebecca Tinnion, 6 October 2022

Burns and other injuries caused by exposure to fire, heat and hot substances are common during bonfire night and firework season.

As we move closer to this time of year, emergency care workers can visit topical elearning to refresh their knowledge and skills in burn and wound care.

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and the College of Paramedics have developed a Management of Burns for Paramedics module which covers key elearning in dealing with burns outside of hospitals.

The learning is suitable for all grades of emergency responder.

Written by a paramedic and edited by a burns specialist nurse, 4 interactive and bitesize elearning sessions are accessible on PCs, laptops, iPads and mobile phones.

By completing the module, you will achieve a greater understanding of the pathophysiology, assessment and immediate management of burn injuries and contribute to your continuing professional development (CPD).
