#2195 Audit of a New Nurse-Led Non-Medical Prescribing (NMP) Clinic for Systemic Anti-Cancer Agents (SACTs)
Introduction: The number of people living with cancer in the UK continues to rise with increased demands on specialist cancer care services. NET incidence and prevalence increases alongside this demand. NETs remain a rare cancer with specialist needs. The clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is ideally placed to support these patients. Oncology clinics are increasingly pressured, the need to think of innovative ways of reducing strain whilst maintaining and enhancing the patients experience is important. To address this we set up a nurse-led SACT NMP clinic alongside the oncology clinic to improve patient experience and reduce oncologist clinic review.
