CommNETS: Formation of an International Commonwealth Countries NET Partnership


Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) care is challenging in Canada, Australia and New Zealand due to small populations in large geographical space, limited drug funding, and lack of NET awareness. There is a need for collaboration to focus research and improve care and outcomes for NET patients in these nations with similar health systems.

Aim(s): To create multi-nation NET collaboration.

Materials and methods: A multidisciplinary group of clinicians, researchers and patients from all three nations attended an inaugural meeting to create the Commonwealth Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (CommNETS) in Nov 2015. A modified Delphi process was undertaken to set priorities for the new group using a web-based questionnaire.
