Patterns of Care of Neuroendocrine Cancer in Ontario: Health Services Delivery Abstract #539

Introduction: Delayed diagnosis and treatment of NETs may result in increased health care utilization, medical costs and patient distress. Patients may be treated by different specialists and modalities.
Aim(s): To analyze health care utilization of NETs patients in Ontario and variations in treatments.
Materials and methods: Using the Ontario Cancer Registry (cross-linked with the Registered Persons Database and the Canadian Institute of Health Information Discharge Abstract Database), all cases of NETs were identified in Ontario (> 13 million persons) from 1994 to 2009. Baseline demographic, clinical and outcomes data were abstracted.
