CE Information and Faculty Disclosures

    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors.


    • Appreciate the variability in clinical presentation, pace of growth and prognosis of different anatomical subtypes of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and evaluate how these and other patient- and disease-related factors affect the selection and sequencing of systemic treatment for unresectable or metastatic forms of the disease.
    • Review published research findings supporting the use of somatostatin analogs in patients with advanced NETs in order to optimally incorporate these agents into current clinical management algorithms.
    • Understand the incidence, clinical manifestations and optimal management of carcinoid syndrome associated with NETs and use this information to appropriately employ currently approved therapies for patients experiencing inadequately controlled carcinoid syndrome diarrhea.
    • Assess the biologic rationale for targeting somatostatin receptors for progressive NETs and appreciate the available clinical trial database with and current role of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy in the management of these tumors.
    • Appraise the documented prevalence von Hippel-Lindau syndrome-associated NETs and develop strategies to care for patients with this unique manifestation of the disease.
