Optimising Followup after Complete Surgical Resection of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours- A Delphi Process to Produce Expert Consensus in an Area Lacking Clinical Evidence
Introduction: Optimal follow-up for completely resected GI-NETS has not been well defined, with heterogeneity in awareness and application of existing guidelines.
Aim(s): To investigate follow-up in GI-NETs using RAND/UCLA appropriateness methodology (RAM).
Materials and methods: A multidisciplinary expert panel (n=18) scored 193 follow up care scenarios for GI-NETS using an online survey. Appropriateness of schedules and investigations for follow up were scored from 1 to 9. Median appropriateness scores were considered. Consensus was reached when 75% scored the scenario similarly.
