Course Overview

Pancreatitis can affect anyone at any age. It can cause critical illness and the acute form can be fatal. Healthcare professionals in every practice setting — from critical care units to patients’ homes — need to be familiar with the identification and management of this disease. Identifying the classic signs and symptoms of chronic and acute pancreatitis, the disease’s underlying pathophysiology, its usual treatment, nutritional therapy, and pain-management steps are essential for a positive patient outcome. The goal of this continuing education program is to prepare healthcare professionals for treating patients with pancreatitis.
