Summary

Pancreatitis, both acute and chronic, presents a significant healthcare challenge, contributing to hospitalizations and, in severe cases, can lead to considerable morbidity and mortality. As per recent data, hospitalizations for acute pancreatitis continue to rise, making it an ever-relevant topic for clinicians. Furthermore, the spectrum of causes, complications, and management strategies for pancreatitis is vast, emphasizing the need for continuous education in this area.

Learning objectives

Diagnose and Differentiate: By the end of this session, participants should be competent in diagnosing pancreatitis swiftly and distinguishing between its acute and chronic presentations using clinical symptoms and diagnostic tests. Management Skills: Participants should be adept at formulating and initiating the initial management plan for a patient presenting with pancreatitis, considering both medical and supportive therapies. Etiology Identification: Attendees should be skilled in identifying and addressing the underlying etiology of pancreatitis, whether it be alcohol, gallstones, medications, or other causes. Complication Awareness: Participants will be competent in monitoring for and managing potential complications of pancreatitis, including but not limited to, necrosis, pseudocyst formation, and infections. Interdisciplinary Collaboration: Attendees should demonstrate proficiency in coordinating care for pancreatitis patients with other specialties, such as surgery or interventional radiology, when indicated.
