Prospective Study on the Impact of a Multi-Institutional NET-Specific Multidisciplinary Tumor Board on Individual Treatment Plans Abstract #1895

Introduction: A multi-institutional health network (nine hospitals) was set up in the Belgian Antwerp-Waasland region for the multidisciplinary care of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (GEP-NET) patients, called “NETwerk”. Local multidisciplinary teams refer all GEP-NET patients to be discussed among specialists, experienced in NET diagnostics and treatment, at a NET specific multidisciplinary tumorboard (MDT).
Aim(s): An interim analysis to determine the efficacy of the NET specific MDTs (biweekly) within “NETwerk” in altering the treatment plan of NET patients
Materials and methods: In a prospective study in 146 consecutive patients discussed at the NET specific MDTs, local treatment plan and with the treatment plan after discussion within “NETwerk” were compared.
