A Comparison of Diagnostic and Management Pathways for Patients with Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors in ENETS Centres of Excellence vs Non-Accredited Centres in the UK: Results from the National Lung NET Pathway Project (‘LEAP’) Abstract #2084

Introduction: The ENETS network of accredited NET Centres of Excellence (CoE) across Europe was established to standardise and improve NET management.
Aim(s): To compare diagnostic and patient management pathways for lung NET in ENETS CoE with non-accredited UK centres (non-CoE).
Materials and methods: Between Oct 2016–May 2017 clinicians at 27 UK centres were interviewed about current patient management. Respondents were from all 10 CoE (4 oncologists, 6 other specialists) and 17 non-CoE (15 oncologists, 2 other specialists). Results are presented as CoE vs non-CoE respondents.

#1342 To Evaluate Patient’s Understand of the Neuroendocrine (NET) Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Meeting Process at a ENETs Centre of Excellence
Introduction: Multidisciplinary teams serve to streamline the patient journey by developing individual treatment plans that are based on ‘best practice'. National and local guidelines govern the MDT process. There is little focus on the patient’s understanding and expectations of how and when the MDT recommendations are communicated.

#1345 To Evaluate How the Outcome of Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Meeting Decisions Are Conveyed to Patients at a ENETS Centre of Excellence (The Christie) and How This Service Can Be Further Improved
Introduction: It is recommended that people with cancer should be managed by an MDT and the outcomes should be communicated in a “timely manner”. However, it does not specify when this should be done, or by whom.

#2017 Data on Healthcare Resource Utilization (HCRU) and Treatment Modalities in Patients (Pts) with Advanced (adv), Well-Differentiated (WD) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) of Gastrointestinal (GI) or Lung Origin in Finland
Introduction: The majority of all NETs develop in the GI tract and about one third develop in the lungs; approximately 43% and 51% of pts, respectively, are diagnosed with adv disease (regional or distant metastasis). While GI and lung NETs are rare, their incidence has increased markedly over the past four decades. The severe and progressive nature of adv NET suggests significant costs for pts and payers.
