Preserving Fertility in Cancer

Overview & Introduction

Mostafa Metwally, Chair

With continuous improvement in the management of various types of cancer, the prospect of long-term survival and cure is becoming ever more a reality. Consequently fertility preservation in cancer survivors is becoming an increasingly important aspect of our daily clinical practice. This study day will address this important area crossing the boundaries between the various disciplines involved, with talks from Clinicians, Nurses and Scientists both in the fields of Reproductive Medicine and Oncology. The course will cover the effect of cancer treatment on fertility, approaches for male and female fertility preservation, as well as the ins and outs of setting up and managing an effective fertility preservation programme.
