Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy Using 177Lu-DOTATATE: Nursing Roles in Managing Patients With Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors.

BACKGROUND: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are a diverse family of cancers that occur within the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas. Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) via 177Lu-DOTATATE is a newer therapeutic option for certain patients with somatostatin receptor-positive GEP-NETs.

OBJECTIVES: This review informs on how oncology nurses treating patients with GEP-NETs receiving PRRT using 177Lu-DOTATATE can facilitate care.

METHODS: Guidance on the monitoring, management, and care of patients undergoing PRRT for GEP-NETs was developed based on published literature and the nursing experience of the authors. A case study is summarized to highlight key concepts.

FINDINGS: Oncology nurses provide assessment, education, direct care, and emotional support when caring for patients with GEP-NETs receiving PRRT with 177Lu-DOTATATE. As the treatment landscape evolves, so too will these roles and responsibilities.
