NANETS Outreach

Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) education is one of the core goals of NANETS. One way we meet that goal is by making useful resources available to providers and the patient community.

In 2010, NANETS coordinated the efforts of neuroendocrine cancer specialists from the US, Canada, and Europe to draft comprehensive and current diagnosis and treatment guidelines for NETs. This collaborative undertaking resulted in the most complete and well-researched text on NET treatment to date.

Those guidelines were reviewed and revised in 2013. Both iterations of the guidelines are available to read or download below.

Current ICD-9-CM codes can also be found here. These codes will be updated to the new ICD-10 standard in October of 2015.
