Development and Initial Validation of a Brief Questionnaire to Assess Patient Satisfaction with Self-Injection of Lanreotide Autogel: Results During a Home Training Programme Abstract #2837

Introduction: The long acting formulation of lanreotide autogel(LAN) can facilitate self-injection (SI) by patients or caregivers at home, avoiding visits to health centers. Training by nurses is required to ensure successful SI. Patient satisfaction(PS) is an important outcome of SI and home care programs.
Aim(s): To design a brief questionnaire to assess PS with SI of LAN and to assess its validity and reliability during a home administration support program.
Materials and methods: After a literature review, specific areas were selected: fear of injection-FI; trust in successful SI(T); ease of use(EU); general satisfaction with SI(GS); willingness to continue with SI(W); satisfaction with training(ST). For each area, a set of items was designed, and its face validity was evaluated by an expert panel. Patients with NETs or acromegaly who agreed to enter the support program answered questionnaires via a telephone interview at the following timepoints: PRE(at first nurse visit:FI,T); POST(2 months after SI start:FI,T,EU,GS,W,ST); and POST-NJ(2 months after starting using the LAN new syringe:FI,T,EU,GS,W). Construct validity (Exploratory Factor Analysis-EFA) and Reliability(Cronbach’s alpha-CA) were assessed.

#3021 Homecare Service for Administration of Lanreotide Autogel Injections: Assessment of Patients’ Experience
Introduction: In the past, all Neuroendocrine Neoplasm (NEN) patients (pts) on long-acting somatostatin analogues (SA), had to attend local hospitals/clinics to have them administered by nurses/doctors. Recently, a “homecare service” was developed, allowing pts to have their injections delivered to their home and injections were either administered by themselves, their partner or a Specialist Nurse (SN).

Introduction: Lanreotide is a long-acting somatostatin analogue with proven antitumor effect against metastatic, well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic-neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). Ga-68-DOTATOC PET/CT is a sensitive imaging technique for NETs by targeting somatostatin receptors.

#2757 Effectiveness of Lanreotide 120 mg (LAN) in Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (panNET) in Routine Clinical Practice
Introduction: PanNETs are the second most common type of tumour of the pancreas. Most patients have metastatic disease at diagnosis with median survival ranges from 2 to 5 years. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) control symptoms and reduce tumour growth in panNET. In the panNET subgroup of the CLARINET study, lanreotide autogel 120 mg reduced the relative risk of progression or death by more than 40% compared with placebo at week 96.
