There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Understanding healthy reproductive systems and processes is essential to caring for people who are embarking on a fertility journey. An Introduction to Reproductive Health introduces foundational concepts of the fertility pathway to expand knowledge of fertility and explore the clinical field of infertility and its 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 educate and support clients on their fertility pathway, and contribute to the multidisciplinary healthcare team in the investigation and treatment of infertility. Students follow a common pathway of fertility investigations and interventions, taking the student from initial contact with the client to treatment, and exploration of possible outcomes.
