Pancreatic cancer is known to carry a poor prognosis. Only 15%–20% of patients present with potentially resectable disease, and therefore accurate diagnosis and staging is essential.

This educational activity will provide the advanced practitioner with important information regarding risk assessment, diagnostic workup, treatment considerations (including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy), and supportive care.
