#39 Specialist dietetic input and nutritional outcomes in Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of tumors that are complex to manage and require a multidisciplinary approach. The most common primary sites are the small intestine and pancreas. The disease itself, as well as sequelae from surgery and medical therapy, can have a negative impact on patients’ nutritional status. Weight loss is known to be a poor prognostic indicator.
