Activity Rationale and Purpose
In the United States, pancreatic cancer makes up 3% of all cancers and is the fourth cause of cancer-related death. The most common type of pancreatic cancer, adenocarcinoma in the ductal epithelium of the exocrine part of the pancreas, comprises about 90% of pancreatic cancer cases worldwide. With new agents becoming available ahead of published treatment guidelines, providers need to stay current on new agents with possibly milder toxicity profiles. In addition, there is the need for provider education on older agents and how associated toxicities can be managed, either through dose reduction, change in agent, or symptom management, to ensure that patients receive their full course of therapy for the best possible chance at a favorable outcome. Finally, another approach to improving survival rates is earlier diagnosis of the disease. Information on early biomarkers for the disease is a step in the direction of overcoming the silent symptoms of pancreatic cancer.

Intended Audience
The intended audience for this enduring internet activity is physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, advanced degree nurses, oncology and hematology nurses, and pharmacists who specialize in the field of oncology.

Learning Objectives
After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Summarize available treatments for patients beyond first-line chemotherapy agents for patients with relapsing or refractory pancreatic cancer
  • Describe the signs of serious toxicities associated with agents used to treat pancreatic cancer as they relate to mechanism of action and approaches to managing the toxicities
  • Identify candidates who are considered high-risk for pancreatic cancer and initial screening modalities
  • Discuss recent advances in the treatment of patients with pancreatic cancer that support an interdisciplinary approach to care
