Multidisciplinary Management and Patient Flow in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): Consensus of a Tertiary Hospital Abstract #1423

Introduction: Currently, there has been an improvement in diagnostic procedures and treatments of NET. Therefore, an effective teamwork is needed to choose the best approach for patients.
Aim(s): To design a clinical guideline.
Materials and methods: HUCA is a tertiary care center in Spain that serves about 40 new patients with NET each year from a population over one million. The multidisciplinary team meets monthly to discuss all new cases and consider other treatment options for those previously diagnosed. The committee is made up of different specialists: endocrinologist, pathologist, gastroenterologist, nuclear medicine, radiologist, surgeon and medical oncologist. Patient flow was designed from the previous clinical guidelines adapting them to our center and resources (Italian one was the reference guideline, Grimandi F. Endocrinol Invest 2014).

#1342 To Evaluate Patient’s Understand of the Neuroendocrine (NET) Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Meeting Process at a ENETs Centre of Excellence
Introduction: Multidisciplinary teams serve to streamline the patient journey by developing individual treatment plans that are based on ‘best practice'. National and local guidelines govern the MDT process. There is little focus on the patient’s understanding and expectations of how and when the MDT recommendations are communicated.
