Pancreatic Cancer: Early Diagnosis in General Practice
Patients frequently present to general practice with a range of undifferentiated symptoms that may or may not signify serious disease. This course helps GPs to make sense of the early symptoms that could be explained by pancreatic cancer.
Using video-based scenarios, it reviews the patterns of symptoms that emerge over time, which can suggest a serious underlying diagnosis, and sets out an approach that GPs can take to ensure appropriate and timely investigation and follow-up in cases of diagnostic uncertainty.

Pancreatic cancer – the role of the pharmacy team
Community pharmacy teams have a vital role to play in the early detection of cancer, and the new National Pharmacy Association-accredited digital learning modules have been specifically developed to help them learn more about the most common symptoms of pancreatic cancer. This will help pharmacists and support staff identify when urgent referral to the GP is required, which could potentially save a life.
