The School of Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Target Audience
Primary care physicians, Specialty physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners – in internal medicine, gastroenterology, pancreas surgery, general and trauma surgery; from OHSU and the Pacific NW/Alaska community

Learning Objectives
This conference is designed to update for primary and specialty care providers in clinical practice on the current diagnostic and treatment approaches to acute and chronic pancreatitis. OHSU and guest faculty will provide an overview of the latest screening criteria, diagnosis technologies, and treatment options for this debilitating disease, along with how current research is translating into clinical care. We will cover hydration, pain management and nutrition as well as hereditary risk and complications. We will also demonstrate the collaborative approach between multiple disciplines by examining complex cases of other benign pancreas conditions. Finally, we aim to build bridges with the community and give providers information on the latest research opportunities available to their patients.
At the conclusion of the activity, participants will be able to: 
•    better classify pancreatitis and its severity 
•    apply best practice hydration, pain management and nutrition for their acute and chronic pancreatitis patients 
•    understand the role and timing of evidence-based medicine interventions (endoscopy, IR and surgery) 
•    promote awareness of higher risk pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer risk
