Homecare Service for Administration of Lanreotide Autogel Injections: Assessment of Patients’ Experience Abstract #3021

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).
Aim(s): To assess the pts’ experience of the “homecare service” for Lanreotide Autogel (LA) injections
Materials and methods: An anonymized questionnaire was sent to 65 of NEN pts using the “homecare service”. Responses were received from 34 patients.

#2195 Audit of a New Nurse-Led Non-Medical Prescribing (NMP) Clinic for Systemic Anti-Cancer Agents (SACTs)
Introduction: The number of people living with cancer in the UK continues to rise with increased demands on specialist cancer care services. NET incidence and prevalence increases alongside this demand. NETs remain a rare cancer with specialist needs. The clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is ideally placed to support these patients. Oncology clinics are increasingly pressured, the need to think of innovative ways of reducing strain whilst maintaining and enhancing the patients experience is important. To address this we set up a nurse-led SACT NMP clinic alongside the oncology clinic to improve patient experience and reduce oncologist clinic review.
