Acute pancreatitis”

by:Sorin Barbu & Narcis Zarnescu

Acute pancreatitis is one of the most common diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, leading to tremendous emotional, physical, and financial human burden. Although the case fatality rate for acute pancreatitis (AP) has decreased over time, the overall population mortality rate for AP has remained unchanged.

In 2013 (a rich year for AP), 3 important papers were published:

  •           Revision of the Atlanta Classification
  •           ACG guidelines for management of AP
  •           IAP/APA evidence-based management guidelines

Based on these documents, the online tutorial will focus on AP management (early and late phase), discussing what is evidence-based, what are the best options today, and what will be the future of surgery, aiming to stimulate discussions, opinions and interactivity. Case-based discussions are included.

Professor Fingerhut.
‘Medical writing is often not officially taught in medical schools, and most physicians learn from their elders, or by experience.
Medical writing,however, is a specific skill that physicians should acquire in a formalized manner, reason why this tutorial has been created.
The main goal of medical writing is to
diffuse information. However, this information must be scientifically correct, methodologically sound,
and adapted to the topic, the scope of the journal as well as to the readership……’

In order to optimize engagement and quality learning on-line the group will be small and as such limited places are available:
