Neuroendocrine Cancer Patient Experience Survey Abstract #1319

Introduction: Annually a national patient cancer survey (NCPES) is performed to assess perceived patient care. It was noted that in the previous cancer experience surveys patients with NET had not been invited to participate. The NET Patient Foundation (NETPF) commissioned Quality Health to undertake this survey in patients with a known diagnosis of neuroendocrine cancer. The patients were identified via NET centres of excellence around England.
Aim(s): To assess perceived level of patient care in 8 areas:initial diagnosis and referral, communication, information, treatment,CNS,support and overall NHS care.
Materials and methods: Study population were adults with a confirmed diagnosis of neuroendocrine cancer between August 2011 to July 2014. The questionnaire was adapted from the NCPES 2014 questionnaire and underwent a process of cognitive testing. Send out undertaken between January to September 2015 The send out followed the same methodology as the CPES

#2078 Self-Reported Side Effects in Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Patients Prescribed Somatostatin Analogues – The Role for Specialist Dietitians and Nurses
Introduction: In practice, many patients with NETs report a change in symptoms after starting somatostatin analogues (SSA’s). Many health professionals and NET patient advocates have noticed that some of the side effects experienced by patients are more common than patient information literature suggests. It is therefore important to ask what and how severe experiences are, and compare to literature, to help raise awareness amongst NET health professionals.
