Purpose:

The study of readmission is in its infancy in the surgical world, and there are no prospective studies, to the investigators' knowledge, evaluating the efficacy of interventions on preventing readmission following pancreatectomy. Undoubtedly, patients and their caregivers will play a key role in any useful intervention to reduce readmission. Therefore, the investigators' approach is to target perioperative education and engagement of patients and their caregivers in the postoperative recovery of pancreatectomy patients.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Scheduled for major pancreatectomy (i.e., pancreaticoduodenectomy, total pancreatectomy, or a distal pancreatectomy). - At least 18 years of age. - Able to read and understand English (the SAFECARE at Home program is only implemented in English) - Has internet access. - Knowledge of the internet and how to use web-based programs. - Not pregnant or breastfeeding. - Able to understand and willing to sign an IRB-approved written informed consent document.
