New Project ECHO series features severe acute pancreatitis March 3

Penn State Project ECHO is launching a no-cost, CME-eligible ECHO series for all Penn State Health-affiliated physicians, including family and community medicine providers, gastroenterologists and internal medicine providers.

The severe acute pancreatitis ECHO series will begin on Wednesday, March 3, from noon to 1 p.m. on Zoom.

The series will include nine, one-hour sessions every other week. Participants will present de-identified patient cases to each other in order to gain confidence and competence in the diagnosis and treatment of severe acute pancreatitis.

The nine sessions will also provide brief expert-led lectures on topics such as:

  • Nutrition through index hospitalization
  • Staged hospital management interventions for pancreatic necrosis
  • Chronic care steps, neoplastic cysts
  • Pathophysiology and traditional outcomes
  • Acute fluid collection and necrosis
  • Acute outpatient care links and site evolution

Over time, participants will become micro-specialists – engaged in a wider community of learners and empowered to address complex situations.
