Certified Medical Training

Due to limited health services in the rural areas, APROQUEN’s medical team travels throughout the country teaching and sharing its medical expertise with health professionals on how to stabilize a patient in the first 24 hours after a burn.

This Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) course was developed by the American Burn Association and adapted by the Latin American Burn Federation (FELAQ) as Atención Basica Inmediata del Paciente Quemado (ABIQ). APROQUEN’s Burn Center’s medical and administrative directors are certified to teach this course.

This program has trained medical doctors, nurses, firefighters, medical students, Red Cross paramedics, labor unions, and Ministry of Health/SILAIS professionals, among others.
