#3041 Resource Use in Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome: A Retrospective Analysis Using the French Health Insurance National (SNDS) Database
Introduction: About 20% of patients (pts) with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) suffer from carcinoid syndrome (CS), mainly from ileum and lung NET. Pts with CS experience symptoms such as diarrhea, flushes and cardiac complications. The diarrhea occurs in almost all pts with CS and can be truly debilitating. Therefore, on top of the tumor, the burden of the symptoms further impairs quality of life and is associated with additional costs related to symptom management and pts follow-up.

#2863 Introduction of Dosimetry on PRRT Practice. A Useful Tool to Detect Responders and Evaluate Treatment Safety
Introduction: PRRT is a recognized salvage option for G1-G2 GEPNET. Currently, the Italian protocol (Lutathera AIFA Guidelines) consists in four fixed-dose of 177 Lu-DOTATATE. The dosimetry has recently been recognized as an important tool to guide PRRT but is not yet part of routine practice.

#2978 Policy Barriers to Increasing Access to Radioligand Therapy for Neuroendocrine Cancers
Introduction: Radioligand therapy is a relatively new treatment approach used in a small number of neuroendocrine cancers and has been shown to improve overall survival and quality of life. Yet because it uses radioactivity, there are particular barriers to its greater integration into cancer care. As neuroendocrine cancers are rare, it is all the more urgent that these barriers be understood and overcome so that this treatment modality can become available to all patients who may benefit.

#128 Multidisciplinary reference centers: the need for combined expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with increasing incidence (Yao et al. J Clin Oncol 2008;26:3063–72). Multidisciplinary reference centers (MRCs) can potentially offer better clinical outcomes by integrating and coordinating expert care from many specialties, reducing delays in treatments and referrals, and allowing for accrual to clinical trials. MRCs have achieved improved outcomes in ovarian, breast and lung cancers (Pollock. Ann Surg 2008;248:510–6; Gabel et al. Cancer 1997;79:2380–4; Forrest et al. Br J Cancer 2005;93:977–8). Despite this, MRCs focusing on NETs are uncommon.

#728 NETworking-The First Three Years of the World NET Cancer Awareness Day Alliance
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors have an incidence of 3-5/100,000 per year, however, many patients are diagonosed late in their clinical course resulting in poor outcomes and early death. Raising awareness of the myriad presenting symptoms with resultant early diagnosis is a priority health care initiative for this disease. In 2010, the World NET Cancer Day Awareness (WNCAD) Alliance was formed with the primary mission to raise awareness of neuroendocrine tumors and promote November 10 as World NET Cancer Awareness Day

#1217 The Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Patient (pt) Perspective: Results from the First Global NET Pt Survey - A Collaboration Between the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA) and Novartis Pharmaceuticals
Introduction: Despite a rising incidence of NETs, few studies document the NET pt experience. We present data on quality of life (QoL) and the global NET pt perspective.

#1449 Promoting High Quality Care in Clinical Trials for Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: The European Institute of Oncology is an ENETS Center of Excellence. Many patients (pts) are treated in clinical trials. The clinical research nurse (CRN) is a key figure in care delivery. Optimising staff resources means some trial activities are delivered by nursing staff with limited research experience. To provide high quality care & accurate trial results, all nursing staff caring for NET pts should have appropriate trial related support and training.
