In brief: No

The only prevention is to avoid the precipitating factor. Alcoholics need to stop drinking.
Gallstone pancreatitis requires removal of gallbladder. Medication induced requires avoiding that medication. Hypertriglyceridemia and hypercalcemia require medication and dietary adjustment to lower these levels.
