Assessment of Quality of Life in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours: Results of a Systematic Literature Review Abstract #2797

Introduction: Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is increasingly important as a concept reflecting the patients’ perspective in conjunction with the disease presentation severity and treatment. Understanding the impact of treatment on neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients’ HRQoL is paramount given the nature of the disease.
Aim(s): To conduct a systematic literature review to identify literature reporting HRQoL data in patients with gastroenteropancreatic (GEP)-NETs between 1985 and 2019.
Materials and methods: The PRISMA guiding principles were applied. MEDLINE, Embase and the Cochrane library were searched. Data extracted from the publications included type of study, patient population data (mid-gut/hind-gut/GI-NET/P-NET), sample size, intervention/comparators, QoL instruments, average and data spread of overall and sub-scores, and follow-up time.

#2713 The Economic Impact to Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: The quality of life impact on patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) and the economic burden on health systems are substantial. However, little is known about the economic burden to individual patients and families for medical out-of-pocket expenses and employment decisions.

Introduction: The liver is the most commonly affected organ in metastatic neuroendocrine disease and is the most incriminating factor for patient survival. Additional treatment of liver disease with radioembolization may improve outcome in NET patients with bulky residual liver disease after PRRT.

#2955 Development of an EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire for Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Phases 1-3
Introduction: Measuring quality of life (QoL) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNET) involves assessing issues from symptoms, disease and treatment. The validated gastrointestinal NETs module (EORTC QLQ-GINET21) is used with EORTC QLQ-C30 but there are concerns it inadequately measures QoL in pNET.
