Carcinoid Abstract #188

Introduction: There is a serious need to develop a clear framework based on multidisciplinary team practice, in order to facilitate early detection and management of carcinoid.
Aim(s): To examine NPs' knowledge of carcinoid and its relationship with demographic characteristics, the number of patients with carcinoid.
Materials and methods: Background data were obtained using a demographic data collection tool. Twenty multiple choice questions assessed NPs' knowledge of carcinoid. Data were collected over a two-day period at the National Clinical Conference, organized by the AANP. A convenience sample of 90 NPs attending the conference was selected, with response rate 100%.

#139 Association of carcinoid with noncarcinoid neoplasms
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors have a complex disease spectrum. Most have a benign clinical course, but some are aggressive, with invasive growth, metastasis and short survival. In carcinoid tumors, more than 20% are associated with noncarcinoid neoplasms. When the second tumor is a more malignant lesion, the prognosis usually is correlated more closely with the noncarcinoid malignant neoplasm.
