The journey of diagnosis, treatment and living with a neuroendocrine cancer (NET) is difficult, confusing and for many, very lonely.

Many patients with NETs have lost faith and trust in a medical system that has often misdiagnosed and unwittingly mismanaged their disease – a result of neuroendocrine cancers being relatively uncommon. 

Therefore it is imperative that NET patients develop and maintain supportive working relationships with NET specialists who have expert knowledge and understanding of their complex cancer. This relationship is critical to improving quality of NET patient care and clinical outcomes. 

The Unicorn Foundation NET Specialist Registry is a resource that acknowledges those medical practitioners who are experienced in the management of neuroendocrine cancers and who fulfill certain criteria that the Unicorn Foundation has applied.

These criteria are:

  • A qualified medical practitioner (without any restrictions) 
  • A medical practitioner with a legitimate interest in management of NETs 
  • Has a reasonable volume of practice of NET patients 
  • Has been involved in ongoing education/CME which includes exposure to NET related topics 
  • Has access to, or direct involvement with a NET multi-disciplinary team/tumour board 
  • Has a relationship with a hospital(s) that has the ability to provide a comprehensive nuclear medical service including provision of PET scanning and peptide receptor
  • radionuclide therapies 
  • Has an interest in NET related research 

Involvement in the Unicorn Foundation NET Specialist Registry is evolving and will continue to list those medical practitioners who have experience in the management of neuroendocrine cancers. If there are Doctors who you believe fit the criteria of being a NET Specialist please contact the Unicorn Foundation at info@unicornfoundation.org.au.
