To Evaluate How the Outcome of Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Meeting Decisions Are Conveyed to Patients at a ENETS Centre of Excellence (The Christie) and How This Service Can Be Further Improved Abstract #1345

Introduction: It is recommended that people with cancer should be managed by an MDT and the outcomes should be communicated in a “timely manner”. However, it does not specify when this should be done, or by whom.
Aim(s): To review how MDT recommendations were communicated at a ENETs Centre of Excellence.
Materials and methods: In this single-centred retrospective study, case-notes of 55 patients who had been discussed at the NET MDT (April-June 2015) were reviewed.
