Description

The aim of this subject is to establish a fundamental understanding of the fertility pathway. The subject introduces foundational concepts of the fertility pathway for students planning to embark on or further develop careers in fertility treatment. The anatomy, physiology, endocrinology and pharmacological theory that underpin treatment decisions related to fertility interventions including assisted reproductive technology (ART) are studied in detail. Students develop essential skills required to provide advice and support to clients undertaking a normal pathway of fertility interventions. This is achieved by following a case study approach from initial contact to pregnancy. Students also develop skills in searching for evidence, critically appraising information and writing for publication.
