The Australian & New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA) Burns Rehabilitation Course (BRC) is a 1-day intensive course designed to inform health providers regarding the assessment, treatment and complexity of rehabilitation of the burned patient.

The program focuses on the post-acute and rehabilitation phase of management and has been developed as a consensus course. It covers both the physical and psychosocial aspects of burn rehabilitation and is presented within the biopsychosocial model of patient care. The course will focus primarily on clinical reasoning, problem solving and trauma focused care within a case study format.

The BRC is aimed at all health care provides who may find themselves involved in the rehabilitation of a severely burnt patient. It will supplement existing clinical knowledge in the management of trauma patients with specific aspects and additional challenges associated with a burn injury.

A manual, outlining all aspects of the physical and psychosocial rehabilitation of the severely burnt patient, will be distributed approximately three weeks before the course. On the day there are is a brief lecture highlighting important aspects of the biopsychosocial burn rehabilitation. This is reinforced by small group interactive learning and skill stations, with demonstrations and discussion with experts.

On successful completion of the BRC, the candidate will receive an official certificate.
