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. It is also important that providers are aware of emerging data and guidelines regarding second- and third-line treatment options. 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.
