Our goal is to drive measurable improvement in patient outcomes and experience to ensure that individuals suffering from chronic and recurrent acute pancreatitis will be able to manage their condition and live longer, healthier, more productive lives.

CARE FRAMEWORK: FOR IMPROVED OUTCOMES & WELL-BEING

We believe it is realistic to create care pathways for people who suffer episodes of acute pancreatitis or chronic pancreatitis to be immediately and thoroughly assessed, systematically treated according to evidence-based standards of care, connected with mental-wellbeing and pain management supports, and continually monitored to adapt treatments strategies as the condition progresses.
To realize this vision of patient-centered care, Mission: Cure is reimagining clinical care to include four mutually reinforcing elements:

Multidisciplinary Care Team

Pancreatitis can be extremely painful and impact an individual’s digestive and mental health and result in other complications. A coordinated team of experts, including a nutritionist, pain specialist, psychologist, and gastroenterologist, provides holistic care.

Accountability to Outcomes

The care team and the patient (or caregiver) prioritize and continually monitor outcomes that consider specific symptoms and overall well-being of the patient, including pain, nutrient absorption, and quality of life.

Evidence-Based Best Practices

Consistent clinical practices that are based on emerging research and guidelines are used to diagnose and care for individuals living with pancreatitis.

Holistic Care Plan

Once a diagnosis has been confirmed and specific outcomes have been identified, the care team works collaboratively with the patient to develop a plan that takes a systematic and relentless approach to manage symptoms and proactively delay disease progression.

We, at Mission: Cure, commend the efforts of the authors and believe that these guidelines are an important step forward for pancreatitis patients who continue to seek a diagnosis and treatment…
