Course description

The delivery of effective, accurate and empathetic communication is vital in fertility care to ensure patient satisfaction and wellbeing. This workshop will focus on offering practical and interactive sessions to assist communication in the changing environments in which fertility professionals work.


Target audience

All staff involved in fertility care


Educational needs and expected educational outcomes

The ESHRE guideline on routine psychosocial care in infertility and medically assisted reproduction stresses the importance of communication skills and information provision and their association with improved patient wellbeing. However, nurses and midwives and other health professionals involved in fertility care may still struggle in day-to-day practice, especially given the changing environments of fertility care (e.g. virtual consultations, the emergence of self-managed interventions)

We will provide delegates with theoretical up to date evidence-based advice and the practical skills to provide effective and empathetic communication ensuring that the patient and their family are placed at the centre of the care they receive.


Innovative aspects of the course

This Campus workshop will be an intensive course focused on developing communication skills using numerous formats of education including workshops and interactive sessions. Notably, the proposed Campus course will be relevant to all professional backgrounds who care for fertility patients.
