#2686 Survivorship Care Model for Patients with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors(NET)are rare often indolent tumors. Approximately 22% of patients (pt's) present with metastatic disease at diagnosis and can live with metastatic disease for years. These pt's often don't identify as cancer survivors and don't meet the criteria for care in traditional survivorship clinics

#3021 Homecare Service for Administration of Lanreotide Autogel Injections: Assessment of Patients’ Experience
Introduction: In the past, all Neuroendocrine Neoplasm (NEN) patients (pts) on long-acting somatostatin analogues (SA), had to attend local hospitals/clinics to have them administered by nurses/doctors. Recently, a “homecare service” was developed, allowing pts to have their injections delivered to their home and injections were either administered by themselves, their partner or a Specialist Nurse (SN).

#34 Plasma Chromogranin A(CgA) and Urinary 5 Hydroxy-indoleacetic acid(5-HIAA) use in monitoring somatostatin analogue(SSA) therapy at Newcastle NHS Foundation Trust
Introduction: Two main biochemical markers, plasma chromogranin A (CgA) and urinary 5 hydroxy-indoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) are used to aid staging and monitoring of patients with neuroendocrine (NET) tumors. Somatostatin analogues (SSA) such as octreotide and lanreotide have been used to alleviate symptoms and disease progression in NET patients. This study evaluates the use of CgA and 5HIAA in monitoring NET patients on SSA therapy at Newcastle NHS Foundation Trust.

#1696 On-going Evaluation of The Clinical Utility of the Health-Related Quality-Of-Life (HRQoL) QLQ-GINET21 Questionnaire (QNR) in the Treatment of Patients (pts) with Gastrointestinal (GI) Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs). QUALINETS Study
Introduction: Outcome measures reported by pts help to weigh benefit/effect of a therapy on quality of life (QoL), provided that their utility in clinical practice is proved. There are few QoL QNRs for pts with NETs, like QLQ-GINET21, with 21 items assessing muscle/bone pain, body image, information, sexual function, symptoms, social function and disease-related concerns.
