Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Neuroendocrine Tumors
Management of Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors
There are now multiple approved treatments and several promising trials with different agents, including some directed therapies, for patients with NETs. The sequencing of these treatments is controversial and will become more complicated as further drugs are approved. Clinicians need to stay current on the knowledge of benefits and risks, including the potential for lifetime radiation toxicity, of the multiple acceptable treatment strategies and apply high-level clinical evidence and expert advice to individualize the treatment and maximize outcomes.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify key patient and clinical factors that influence choice for patients with various presentations of advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
- Select optimal treatment selection for patients with carcinoid syndrome.
- Describe clinical trials investigating new systemic therapies for advanced NETs.
