Multidisciplinary management of acute pancreatitis

Unfortunately this event has been cancelled

Thursday 25 February 2010

Venue: The Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 0AE

Acute pancreatitis is a disease that does not respect medical boundaries. It is the province of surgeons, physicians, radiologists, intensivists, endoscopists and emergency medicine doctors. It would be ideal if such a team could plan shared care reviews of such cases, but acute pancreatitis will of course present as a potentially life threatening emergency. Those dealing with this problem have a need for cross-disciplinary learning that will enable them to give the best possible coordinated acute response.

Aim of meeting:
This meeting aims to present the most up to date expert dialogue across the relevant speciality boundaries for those who may deal with patients with acute pancreatitis.

To examine the latest evidence for advances in the management of acute pancreatitis.
To debate expert opinions on the management of acute pancreatitis.
To be able to understand the role of different team members in the management of acute pancreatitis.
To explore how to manage such cases optimally as a team.

Who should attend?
This meeting will be of value to GI surgeons, physicians, gastoenterologists, radiologists, interventional radiologists, intensivists, endoscopists, emergency medicine doctors and to all trainees who deal with medical and surgical emergencies.
