Unicorn Foundation invites NET patients to participate in Defining NETs research
May 03, 2017|
It’s been nearly twelve months since the “Defining NETs” research project of Unicorn Foundation – Australia, INCA member organization, started and while some valuable data has been collected so far, it is still behind the anticipated targets in recruitment. So far patients from Peter Mac, Royal North Shore and Lyell McEwin Hospital are assisting with this important study which will ultimately benefit all NET patients.
This Unicorn Foundation project is funded by the Victorian Cancer Agency and aims to define the differences in patient experience, supportive care needs, psychological well-being and quality of life between those with functioning and non-functioning NETs. Patients who have been newly diagnosed with a NET (within 6 months) classified as either functioning or non-functioning by the treating oncologist, and are over 18 years of age and proficient in English, can assist the study.
