#2195 Audit of a New Nurse-Led Non-Medical Prescribing (NMP) Clinic for Systemic Anti-Cancer Agents (SACTs)
Introduction: The number of people living with cancer in the UK continues to rise with increased demands on specialist cancer care services. NET incidence and prevalence increases alongside this demand. NETs remain a rare cancer with specialist needs. The clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is ideally placed to support these patients. Oncology clinics are increasingly pressured, the need to think of innovative ways of reducing strain whilst maintaining and enhancing the patients experience is important. To address this we set up a nurse-led SACT NMP clinic alongside the oncology clinic to improve patient experience and reduce oncologist clinic review.

#1317 Value of Octreoscan and 18FDG-PET for Clinical Prognosis of Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Despite the existence of biological markers of aggressiveness, the clinical course of gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) remains difficult to predict. Discrepancies between imaging data generated with 111In-pentetreotide scintigraphy (SRS) and 18 F-FDG-PET could reflect the degree of cellular de-differentiation.

#2078 Self-Reported Side Effects in Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Patients Prescribed Somatostatin Analogues – The Role for Specialist Dietitians and Nurses
Introduction: In practice, many patients with NETs report a change in symptoms after starting somatostatin analogues (SSA’s). Many health professionals and NET patient advocates have noticed that some of the side effects experienced by patients are more common than patient information literature suggests. It is therefore important to ask what and how severe experiences are, and compare to literature, to help raise awareness amongst NET health professionals.

#80 Metastatic growth hormone secreting pituitary carcinoma treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy
Introduction: Pituitary carcinoma (PC) is an extremely rare condition defined by the presence of adenohypophyseal neoplastic tissue outside the pituitary. Clinical experience regarding diagnosis, management and prognosis of PC is very limited. Growth hormone (GH) secreting PC is even rarer and represents a particular challenge to clinical practice. Therapeutic modalities utilized to treat PC include surgery, radiation, hormonal therapy, and cytotoxic drugs. Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) is an emerging therapeutic modality that involves the targeted delivery of an ablative dose of radiolabelled somatostatin analog. PRRT has been applied to various neuroendocrine tumors and results in prolonged survival and enhanced quality of life. As yet, this therapy has not been applied to malignant pituitary tumors.
