Diagnosis & management of Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency
|Date & Time||Add to calendar|
About the webinar:
Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency (PEI) symptoms vary greatly among patients and often resemble other gastrointestinal conditions. This may lead to delayed diagnosis and management of PEI which, in turn, can result in detrimental effects including malabsorption, malnutrition and reduced quality of life. To learn more about diagnosing, managing, and differentiating PEI and other pancreatic conditions in your patients, join our upcoming webinar with dietitian Mary Phillips. Mary will explain how to recognise signs of PEI, navigate nutritional assessments in patients with malabsorption and understand the differential diagnosis to consider when managing a patient with PEI.
