Insights into the Practice Patterns, Challenges and the Role of a Shared Care Model in the Management of Neuroendocrine (NET) Patients in the Community


Introduction: Management of NET patients often involves a multidisciplinary approach,requiring collaboration between referring oncologists,surgeons,endocrinologists locally and NET specialty centers (NSC).

Aim(s): We therefore aimed to understand barriers and opportunities in the development of a shared care model between local medical oncologists(LMOs)and NSC.

Materials and methods: An anonymous web based survey(30 questions) was conducted among Medical Oncologists(MOs)from Canada and Australia. Questions focused on demographics, comfort with management,interest in education,shared care,current methods & perceived barriers to collaboration in NETs management.Responses were reported using frequencies & percentages.Qualitative responses analyzed for recurrent themes.
