The INCA poster “Unmet Needs in Global NET Care: Similarities and Differences in the Perspectives of Patients, Patient Advocates and NET Health Professionals” was awarded First Prize in the Clinical Category at the 16th Annual ENETS Conference – the biggest medical conference in NETs. INCA is deeply honored to have received the award, as one of its key priorities is informing the medical community about the experiences of patients living with NETs, as well as all the challenges they face with limited information about the disease, and inequalities in access to diagnostics and treatments.
Over 1600 NET healthcare professionals and experts involved in the wrap-around care for NET patients attended the 16th Annual ENETS Conference, which took place between 6 and 8 March 2019, in Barcelona, Spain. During these three days INCA had the opportunity to give a number of presentations, to chair a session and to discuss its achievements and future plans at a dedicated showcase in a fully-packed room of key stakeholders.
INCA would like to once again thank its Board of Directors and Membership for their energy and commitment, as well as everyone who supported the Unmet Needs Initiative. This assessment was funded through a grant from the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF), a non-profit charitable organization and INCA member.
