INCA (the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance) have launched a project to raise awareness of NETs in the European Parliament.
To tackle the challenges in the management of neuroendocrine tumours, healthcare professionals met with policy makers in the European Parliament on 10 November 2015. The stakeholders marked World Neuroendocrine Tumour Day and presented concrete policy recommendations on how NET care can be improved for EU citizens.
These recommendations outline the challenges of NETs, their impact on patient lives and the importance for support to research in this field.
The intention is to provide guidance to protect and improve human health through better management of conditions, contribute to EU and Members States’ policy-making in the field and underline the need for mobilisation of all the Neuroendocrine community.
These policy recommendations represent a call to action from specialists in the field for Member States and the European Commission to ensure appropriate policies on NETs. Their direct implementation by decision makers can help ensure appropriate long term care for patients with NETs. PLANETS offer their full support.
