NET Primer for Healthcare Professionals

This booklet was created in Fall 2015 and updated in April 2019. It is the only "easy to read handbook" developed specifically for health care professionals on the basics of neuroendocrine tumors in the U. S.  It is written in peer to peer language, authored by neuroendocrine cancer physician experts and a select group of neuroendocrine cancer patient advocates to "speak" to general practitioners so they can spot, correctly diagnose, and treat neuroendocrine cancer.  The material is offered free of charge and shipped free of charge. You can request copies or download a PDF at https://www.thehealingnet.org/neuroendocrine-tumors-a-primer.

The Healing NET International Summit brings together providers and patient advocates by invitation to debate and collaborate to solve gaps in care for those with neuroendocrine cancer. It has become clear that collaboration and a "meeting of minds" can change decisions that physicians make in their everyday practice of care. This is an important takeaway as Healing NET Foundation seeks to better educate and provide resources to the general medical community about NETs. Since 2016, the Summit has served as a "think tank" to drive future programs.

Navigating the NET Patient Journey was written by a group of support group leaders, patients, and caregivers, who are on the NET journey themselves, so that fellow patients and caregivers can benefit from their observations of the roads they have traveled. They also invited some experts who are dedicated to the care of people with neuroendocrine cancer to share their perspective. Find more information at https://www.thehealingnet.org/navigating-nets.

Population(s) Served

Healing NET worked with medical experts, patients, and caregivers to write High-Grade Neuroendocrine Cancers: A Guide for Patients and Caregivers. The publication is for people who are diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (NEC) or Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Tumors (G3 NETs) and specifically addresses ways to meet the challenge of a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer diagnosis.
