#54 The clinical challenge of patients with a thoracic or neck neuroendocrine tumor: a retrospective analysis from a single Irish institution
Introduction: Thoracic and neck neuroendocrine tumors (T-N-NETs) represent a rare and intriguing condition and the management of patients with a NET localized at the thorax or neck can be extremely problematic. An expert and multidisciplinary approach is generally required for the optimal management of NET patients. A systematic multidisciplinary approach to NET patients has been recently established at our institution.

#1767 International Patient Survey of Physical, Emotional and Informational Challenges when Living with NETs: Understanding the Unmet Needs
Introduction: The usefulness of information sources used by NET patients is rarely explored by patient surveys of disease burden/impact on daily living, and may be key to optimizing care.

#2100 OPERA: Observational Study of Perception of Information and Quality of Life in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors Starting Lanreotide – Study Design
Introduction: Information provided to patients about burden and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) may ease treatment adherence, outpatient monitoring, and improve quality of life (QoL), but can also cause anxiety. Data on how to individually adapt materials are insufficient and mainly derived from clinical trials.

#829 On the Benign Side of Malignancy: How Neuroendocrine Tumors are Experienced by Patients and Their Family Carers
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare, slow-growing neoplasia with variable clinical presentations. Due to their non-specific symptoms and a lack of diagnostic tools, late diagnosis is common. There is little research relating to NETs as experienced by both patients and family carers.

#2090 Financial Toxicity in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumor Disease. A so far Underestimated "Side Effect" of Cancer in Germany?
Introduction: Cancer is not only associated with physical and psychological, but also financial burden. In contrast to other countries, the socio-economic impact of cancer for patients in Germany, with a third party paid health care system, is poorly understood.

#216 Patients Treated for Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Study to Evaluate the Ratio of Patients Lost to Follow-up
Introduction: Well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (wdNET) are considered more indolent than other epithelial malignancies. Median survival for patients with G1/G2 NET can range from 33 to 223 months.

#1073 The Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) SIGNETURe Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Registry of Australia: First Report of Patient Characteristics and Patterns of Care
Introduction: NETs remain a relatively rare malignancy. Clinical trials are often hindered by the limited number of patients available and thus registries provide important information about patterns of care and patient outcomes.

#854 Scoping Study on Quality of Life (QL) in Patients (pts) with Neuroendoncrine Tumors (NET) of the Digestive Tract in Argentina: Preliminary Results
Introduction: Patients with NET compound a specific cancer population: their survival used to be longer than other cancer patient populations and they received drugs (eg. somatostatin analogues) rarely used on others. The systematic measure of QL in these patients could lead to better understanding of the impact of the disease and treatments, not only in terms of symptom prevalence but also in relation to daily concerns.
