Overview

Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are considered to be a rare disease although the frequency of diagnosis has increased over the last ten years. As this is a rare disease, clinicians often do not know how to implement the appropriate care plan and until the last ten years, there was great variability in terms of treatment. The diagnosis, treatment and management of NETs are time-consuming, complex and require a multidisciplinary approach. Many healthcare providers who face these challenges are not adequately equipped in their knowledge or experience optimally manage NET disease.

The field of NET research has been evolving with new drug approvals and treatment modalities. In addition, experts in the field of NET disease have continued to develop strategies to improve diagnosis, treatment and management of NET cancers. It is through convening professionals in the areas of oncology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, surgery, radiology and allied fields that the awareness and understanding of NET diseases will expand, resulting in better treatment for NET patients.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for oncologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, primary care physicians, advanced practice nurses, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, fellows, students, and other allied health professionals involved with or interested in the treatment of patients with neuroendocrine tumors.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review current concepts of neuroendocrine tumor pathology, molecular profile, classification, and grading
  • Discuss the various diagnostic processes and use of current and emerging diagnostic tools to determine neuroendocrine tumor type
  • Summarize the current safety and efficacy data of the various surgical, medical and loco-regional approaches in the management of neuroendocrine tumors
  • Recognize the clinical features associated with carcinoid syndrome
  • Apply a multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with neuroendocrine tumors
  • Review clinical trial data and ongoing studies evaluating novel management strategies for the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
