15th December 2021

1800-1900 hours (UK time)

An understanding of the presentation of acute pancreatitis, the initial management steps, and the potential complex outcomes is vital for any junior doctor. Additionally, communication with the patient and his/her family is particularly important, as well as the consolidation of an appropriate escalation plan. This talk aims to build the confidence of senior medical students and Foundation Year 1 Doctors, helping them to be better prepared if they encounter this condition in an emergency or surgical ward setting.

Suitable for:

  • Medical Students (clinical years))
  • Foundation Year 1 Doctors
