Management of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) (22nd Annual National Conference)

This activity consists of a recorded presentation from 22nd Annual National Conference held in Minneapolis, MN on September 24-26, 2013.
NETs often present a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. They can arise almost anywhere in the body and are therefore associated with a board range of local symptoms. Improved diagnostic techniques, increased recognition of neuroendocrine tumor subtypes, and new therapeutic modalities have enhanced the ability to detect and appropriately treat these unique malignancies. This presentation will discuss the treatment options and clinical benefits of advances in targeted therapy for NETs, along with the importance of a multidisciplinary team for optimal outcomes.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to

  1. Define NETs and the challenges in diagnosing them
  2. Discuss the treatment options for NETs and the clinical benefit of advances in targeted therapy when appropriate
  3. Review the benefits of receiving treatment recommendations from a multidisciplinary team at a cancer center prior to receiving treatment in a community practice
