Pediatric Pancreatitis Patient Passport

Recognizing that many patients do not have local access to pediatric pancreatologists when having an acute episode of pancreatitis, the Pancreas Committee of NASPGHAN, in collaboration with patient advocacy groups, designed the Pediatric Pancreatitis Passport. The Passport includes patient-specific information and recommendations from their pancreatologist/gastroenterologist about their pancreatic disease and recommendations for urgent care providers on the treatment of the acute symptoms associated with acute or acute on chronic pancreatitis in children.
