Federally funded program (see below for fee details*): “Burn Center" (posted 2/7/2011)

"I want to share a new interactive training program with you called Burn Center which is geared to medical trauma nurses and doctors. The medical simulation course was developed by University of Florida experts and 360Ed to model a mass disaster involving patients with burn injuries. It is approved for 8 credit hours of CME/CNE certification.

The federally funded program, “Burn Center,” simulates an explosion at a theme park and teaches life-saving skills needed to treat up to 40 victims of burns, bombs and blasts. Health professionals care for virtual patients, making crucial decisions and dealing with potential complications from their injuries. The game features multiple scenarios and players receive scores based on response time and accuracy of care provided.

“Burn Center targets surgeons and nurses to provide training regarding what they would encounter in burn and blast injuries – something they may not see every day, “ said Dr. David Mozingo, a professor of surgery in the UF College of Medicine and Director of the Shands Burn Center at UF. “Every time you play the game it is going to be different because the complications are put in a ‘controlled randomness’ where it is an appropriate complication to occur,” said Mozingo, who developed the patient training scenarios with the help of other burn and trauma surgeons.

Please visit the 360Ed website (burncentertraining.com) to view a sample of Burn Center. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss it with you in detail or answer any questions you may have. Should you be interested, I can send you a demo code to access the entire course."

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Barry Krueger
