Background. For those who want a quick run through of Neuroendocrine Tumors from diagnosis to selection of treatment, about the treatments themselves plus what is the Future Directions in the Management of Neuroendocrine Tumors. There are 8 episodes, and each is around 3-5 minutes long. I personally found them very useful and in a language understandable to patients.

Most of this is pretty standard knowledge across the NET Specialist community. One thing I would add is that Dr Reidy-Lagunes talked in at least one of the videos about her own approach to treating NET patients and this may differ in other NET centers.
