About Centers of Excellence (CoE)

The task force established a pilot certification process based on independent evaluation and auditing in association with a European-accredited medical health care evaluation company, GSG Dortmund. 37 CoE have been accredited since 2008.

Benefits reported by certified Centers include:
  • Improved recognition (in-house and external)
  • More NET patients
  • Improved structured cooperation
  • Improved MDT Meetings (more in-depth discussions and consistent specialist participation)
  • Improved  patient documentation
  • Improved patient follow-up, quality control and statistics
  • Improved research  and more patients in clinical trials
  • Fruitful discussions with  external peers during the audit
  • Possibility of recognizing affiliated referral partner

The most important open question at the moment:

  • Is there a benefit for patients?

It is likely that patients will benefit from implementation of this rigorous process applied to NET healthcare management, as well as the additional education and research.

Tangible benefits are difficult to assess, but accumulated data during recertification, coupled with data from the ENETS European Registry should provide important information.

Important Notice:

In preparation of the upcoming 16th Annual ENETS Conference, 6 to 8 March 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, we have discovered in the world wide web at least one professional entity suggestive of possessing an ENETS mandate for conference registrations. Therefore, we must inform you that 100% of all conference participants are registered through ENETS official website www.enets.org and http://enetsconference.org/. There are no further options to validly register for Barcelona 2019 (or for any other ENETS event).

Please stay away from fraudulent scams abusing the ENETS acronym to register – and charge you above official ENETS conference fees! Such entities, against whom ENETS presses criminal charges, are neither authorized, nor commissioned nor instructed by ENETS to make such representations.
