When:  Jul 25, 2022 from 15:00 to 16:00 (CT)

Lack of understanding of patients’ religious needs can lead to access of care issues for religiously observant patients. This webinar outlines religious concerns with respect to IVF treatment with attention to both clinical aspects of care and impacts on the laboratory. Specific details on interfacing with religious observers and handling of these samples will be outlined.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify religious barriers to patients pursuing reproductive care and infertility treatment. Summarize ways to incorporate religiously inclusive care into a clinic.
  • Describe methods to integrate religiously appropriate handling techniques for gametes and embryos in the IVF laboratory.
