Workshop Description

As educational activities addressing the imaging spectrum of pancreatic diseases are still scarce, especially when it comes to looking at it from a multidisciplinary point of view, ESGAR (European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology) and EPC (European Pancreatic Club) have joined forces in organising this workshop. For imaging to act as a basis for clinical decision-making a variety of issues needs to be understood not only by radiologists, but also by gastroenterologists, surgeons, pathologists and other specialists. To enable effective, patient focused and collaborative decision-making within a clinical environment, radiologists need to be aware of the relevant questions to be answered in a multidisciplinary environment. Thus, the aim of this course is to enhance the mutual understanding of important issues in the clinical management of patients with pancreatic diseases in order to improve patient-related outcomes.

Multidisciplinary aspect
Providing knowledge on an integrated approach of imaging in the diagnosis, management and treatment of pancreatic diseases, is the aim of this course. The attendees will learn about currently used and emerging imaging methods, clinically relevant questions and how the answers to them influence clinical decision-making.

“The ESGAR/EPC Pancreatic Workshop, 15/10/2020-16/10/2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 11 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.”

“Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

“Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.”
