Patient Session – ESHRE CONGRESS Stockholm 2011

TOPIC:  Education in fertility awareness. From prevention to action: whose duty?

Organised by Fertility Europe

SESSION CO-ORDINATORS / MODERATORS: Clare Lewis-Jones MBE (United Kingdom), Conrad Engler (Switzerland) and Denisa Priadkova (Slovakia)

SESSION DESCRIPTION: It is our aim to present evidence of what is and is not happening across Europe in terms of Education programmes in schools, universities, general practitioners and elsewhere aimed at raising awareness of what can impact on your fertility; what educational tools are effective in ensuring people are aware of how their reproductive system works before it is too late.  We will include both the perspective of the female and male in terms of delaying trying for a child as well as the availability of egg and sperm freezing being suggested to patients as a way of ensuring a pregnancy in the future. But is it? Finally we will look at why human fertility is declining more rapidly in some countries around the world.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Clinicians, psychologists, biologists, embryologists, counselors, midwives, nurses and other paramedicals working in the field of reproductive medicine, any person involved in health education, patient representatives.
