Webinar overview

A growing number of patients travel abroad to undergo fertility treatments – a worldwide phenomenon called Cross-Border Reproductive Care (CBRC) which can be explained by regulatory, legal, financial or sociocultural reasons, as well as the expertise of some countries in reproductive medicine.

Undergoing fertility treatments is hard, and it is even harder when one has to travel abroad for it. The organisational and logistic aspects are much more complex, and so is the emotional load (stress, difficulties of communication, lack of support during critical phases of the treatments). International patients have therefore very specific needs which need to be addressed by the clinics and by professionals who accompany them in the process.

Topics covered:

  • Sources of stress for additional patients and how clinics can help reduce them.
  • The importance of fluid communication with international patients.
  • Emotional support to international patients.
