The diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is increasing: data shows a five-fold rise over the last 30 years. As a result of this increase, a vast number of NET patients are seeking care from physicians who may have little knowledge or experience with these diseases. Additionally, the treatment options for patients with neuroendocrine tumors are rapidly being developed.
There is a clear need to educate community physicians and allied health care providers across the US about NETs diagnosis, treatment, and advances in the field.
To address this need, NANETS has created a regional conference program. The one-day event focuses on the standard management of patients with neuroendocrine tumors, sequence of treatments and new therapeutic approaches to these diseases.
Our goal for these conferences is to partner with centers to further develop regional NET teams, increase patient access to clinical trials and improve the ability for NET patients to receive a comprehensive, multidisciplinary management plan.
