TRENDING MEDICAL EDUCATION TOPIC: INFERTILITY
Infertility affects approximately 1 in 8 couples trying to conceive. Many healthcare professionals may not be up to date on the latest infertility tests or treatment modalities. Some are not aware of how to conduct a basic infertility workup because they lack the information needed to determine a patient’s prognosis. This ineffective workup leads to a delay, sometimes over many months, in choosing the adequate treatment. Additionally, healthcare professionals need to be aware of the third-party reproductive options available to patients who meet that criteria and would benefit from such options, thus potentially impacting patient outcomes. Healthcare professionals should also be knowledgeable and be able to recognize the indications for fertility preservation. Lastly, it is important to know how to address concerns regarding COVID-19 infection and COVID-19 vaccines and their effect on fertility.
