Event description

Description

The National Pancreas Foundation Minnesota State Chapter and the University of Minnesota Medical Center jointly host a Patient, Caregiver and Family Centered Care for Pancreatic Diseases educational event.

This session is appropriate for patients who have suffered from severe acute pancreatitis, recurrent acute pancreatitis, or chronic pancreatitis and their family members. The main goals are to increase understanding of the immediate and long-term impact of pancreatitis on health and ability to function, and treatment strategies for pancreatitis. Session topics will include pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic strategies for pain relief; endoscopic management of pancreatitis; surgical approaches to pancreatitis including total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplant; and how to manage complications of pancreatitis including diabetes.

Speakers will address disease in children and adults.

We will also discuss updates and resources available at the National Pancreas Foundation National Office, the NPF Minnesota Chapter and the approved centers at the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic Rochester.
