Identifying and Prioritising Gaps in Neuroendocrine Tumour Research - Results of the Delphi Consensus Project of the Commonwealth Neuroendocrine Tumour Research Collaboration (CommNETS)


Introduction: The newly formed CommNETS group used the robust Delphi methodology with broad stakeholder engagement to form a strategic research agenda.

Aim(s): To identify gaps in NET research and develop research priorities.

Materials and methods: A 3 round Delphi (2 online surveys plus final round at the Inaugural CommNETS meeting) was performed with wide participation from stakeholders including subject experts (medical, nursing, scientific) and consumers (patients, families, advocates). Round 1 identified gaps in NET research and CommNETs’ strengths compared to USA & Europe; Round 2 identified research priorities; Round 3 ranked priorities after extensive workshops and established project groups.
