Insights into the Practice Patterns, Challenges and the Role of a Shared Care Model in the Management of Neuroendocrine (NET) Patients in the Community Abstract #3077

Introduction: Management of NET patients often involves a multidisciplinary approach,requiring collaboration between referring oncologists,surgeons,endocrinologists locally and NET specialty centers (NSC).
Aim(s): We therefore aimed to understand barriers and opportunities in the development of a shared care model between local medical oncologists(LMOs)and NSC.
Materials and methods: An anonymous web based survey(30 questions) was conducted among Medical Oncologists(MOs)from Canada and Australia. Questions focused on demographics, comfort with management,interest in education,shared care,current methods & perceived barriers to collaboration in NETs management.Responses were reported using frequencies & percentages.Qualitative responses analyzed for recurrent themes.

Introduction: Conservatively,the incidence of NETs is 7 / 000' p.a, however,the prevalence of patients living with NETs is higher,40/000',making it the 2nd most common GI malignancy after colorectal cancer.Patients are living longer,however,with impaired quality of life.Management of debilitating symptoms such as diarrhoea,fatigue,anxiety,and flushing are complex and heterogenous.

#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.

#128 Multidisciplinary reference centers: the need for combined expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with increasing incidence (Yao et al. J Clin Oncol 2008;26:3063–72). Multidisciplinary reference centers (MRCs) can potentially offer better clinical outcomes by integrating and coordinating expert care from many specialties, reducing delays in treatments and referrals, and allowing for accrual to clinical trials. MRCs have achieved improved outcomes in ovarian, breast and lung cancers (Pollock. Ann Surg 2008;248:510–6; Gabel et al. Cancer 1997;79:2380–4; Forrest et al. Br J Cancer 2005;93:977–8). Despite this, MRCs focusing on NETs are uncommon.
