In the European Fertility Society (EFS) we advocate universal improvement in patient care, giving tools, support and education to patients and fertility clinics. We strongly believe in the importance for patients to have a positive and enriching experience during their fertility journey together with the health team that accompanies them.
Is for this reason that the EFS has a double mission, one dedicated to patients to have a more friendly and care-based treatment; and one dedicated to clinics through teaching and training its health and patient care staff.
It is our pleasure to begin this double mission creating a Patient Care Guidance, clinical and evidence-based oriented. The team that I am honoured to chair, the Patient Care Guidance Development Group, is integrated by fertility professional, scientists and former fertility patients, aimed to develop a patient centred care system working from different areas of the fertility field.
We are more than happy with the improvements we have done in our first steps, and we are willing to present you in a few months the Patient Care Guidance!
