Comparing Real-life Practice to Established Guidelines in the Management of Gasteroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Cancer Patients: A Tertiary Cancer Center Experience Abstract #1541

Introduction: Guidelines by ENETS in the management of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GP-NETS) are intended as a clinical tool to practice evidence-based medicine. Its adaptability and translation in real-life setting has yet to be examined.
Aim(s): Compare clinical practice versus ENETS guidelines in the management of GP-NET patients
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of clinical records was performed in 27 patients diagnosed GP-NETS between 2008-2015.Initial clinical decision point was analysed. These included: initial laboratory and imaging investigations, classification on the pathological reports, medical and surgical management and time to referral to medical speciality. These points were compared to ENETS guidelines.

#33 Survival of Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients in Newcastle NHS Foundation Trust
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare neoplasms, with an incidence of 2-2.4 per 100,000, which derive from the neurones and epithelial cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system. Neuropeptide-secreting NETs may present with overt clinical symptoms including abdominal pain, flushing and diarrhoea, whereas non-functioning NETs may be asymptomatic or present with obstructive symptoms. In Newcastle NHS Foundation Trust, NET patients are managed with a multi-disciplinary approach, according to UK and European NET guidelines.
