Here you can access a range of educational resources to support and improve your knowledge of pancreatic cancer.
Presentations from study days
We like to share learning from our educational events so that you can benefit, even if you were unable to attend on the day. If you're a registered member of our Health Professional Network you can view presentations from all of our Study Days.
We worked in partnership with the National Council for Palliative Care, the Leeds Hospital NHS Trust, St Giles Hospice and NHS England to develop the Homeward Bound educational resources for health professionals. The resources aim to help provide good quality end of life care for people affected by pancreatic cancer and include questions to help health professionals reflect on their own experiences.
Type 3c diabetes information
We have worked with the Nutrition Interest Group of the Pancreatic Society (NIGPS) to produce two new resources about Type 3c diabetes. This is also known as Pancreatogenic Diabetes or Secondary Diabetes. It’s a type of diabetes that’s caused by surgical removal of all or part of the pancreas, or by damage to the pancreas, for example by pancreatic cancer.
These resources are designed for you to use with your patients. One booklet is for people with a reduced appetite or have lost weight, who are aiming to put weight on, and/or recovering from surgery. The other booklet is for people who have a good appetite, are aiming to maintain or reduce their weight, and are not recovering from surgery.
If you have any feedback about these resources, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
10 top tips for GPs
We have collaborated with Macmillan Cancer Support to develop a '10 top tips' resource for GPs. This resource was developed with guidance from our Patient and Carer Advisory Board and Macmillan GPs and highlights key facts and advice for GPs diagnosing pancreatic cancer.
