Pilot Electronic Survey to Locate Nurses Caring for NET Patients in Europe. Abstract #1799

Introduction: There is an assumed variance in the roles nurses have in looking after NET patients, and the different levels of knowledge.
Aim(s): The European Neuroendocrine Tumour society- Nurse Group wanted to locate nurses who take care for NET patients, and to explore their educational needs.
Materials and methods: A pilot study was created by developing a survey in English. This was mailed to the ENETs and UKINETs group; all healthcare professionals. A second, follow up survey was developed on the basis of the pilot study.

#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.

#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.
