Managing Nutrition and Pancreatic Enzymes
We’re running twice-monthly online sessions on managing nutrition and pancreatic enzymes. They’re hosted by one of our specialist nurses, and the atmosphere is friendly and informal.
- Meet other people with pancreatic cancer
- Discuss any nutritional issues you might be experiencing
- Learn more about managing your diet and the use of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT), such as Creon®
Who is this session for?
This session is for anybody living with pancreatic cancer, and for family, friends and carers looking to support a loved one with managing their nutrition.
If you’re a healthcare professional, please check out our dedicated support for you.
Can I come to more than one?
Each Managing Nutrition and Pancreatic Enzymes session will cover the same content, but you’re welcome to come to as many as you’d find helpful.
Thursday 12th August, 11am – 12.30pm, hosted by a specialist nurse
