About the Event
LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes, the Department of Oncology and the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society invite you to attend this one-day medical education conference on the multidisciplinary management of neuroendocrine disease.
Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are considered to be a rare disease, although the frequency of diagnosis has increased over the last 10 years. As this is a rare disease, clinicians often do not know how to implement the appropriate care plan, and, until recently, 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 health care providers who face these challenges are not adequately equipped in their knowledge or experience to 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 people with NETs.
This activity is designed for oncologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, primary care physicians, advanced practice nurses, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, fellows, students, researchers and other allied health professionals involved with or interested in the treatment of patients with neuroendocrine tumors.
Registration is free for fellows, students and interns. Read the agenda and details.
