Health-Related Quality-of-Life (HRQoL) in Patients (pts) with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) Treated with Everolimus (EVE): Results from an Open-label, Phase IIIb, Multicenter, Expanded Access Program (EAP) Abstract #903

Introduction: NET is associated with a considerable HRQoL burden.
Aim(s): To assess the effect of EVE treatment on pt-reported outcomes with validated instruments.
Materials and methods: Pts with advanced NET (N=246), WHO PS 0-2, treated with EVE (10 mg/d) were included in EAP until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, discontinuation, death, until commercial availability of EVE or May 2012, whichever came first. HRQoL was assessed with EORTC QLQ-C30, EORTC QLQ-GINET21 and EQ-5D instruments at baseline, for three 28-day cycles and then at every three cycles (84-day) until end of treatment (EOT). For QLQ-C30 and QLQ-GINET21, a change of >10 points from baseline to EOT was considered clinically significant.

#3023 The Major Role of Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET)-Specialist Nurse in Improving NET Patients Disease-related QoL - Preliminary Data
Introduction: There is increasing evidence regarding the key role of dedicated specialist nurses in the treatment of cancer patients. Nurse coordinators serves as an available, accessible and knowledgeable resource for both patient and patient's family, more than the general registered nurses. They know better how to control symptoms and work as team players with multiple care providers.
