About this book
This book examines risk in assisted conception, covering a wide range of topics and areas. The authors discuss the ‘Risk’ specifically for situations where patients or professionals are at risk of an adverse outcome in relation to fertility treatment. Reducing Risk in Fertility Treatment encompasses clinical complications, risks inherent in laboratory practice, reputational and business risks to clinics, and ethical risks to society as a whole.
Reducing Risk in Fertility Treatment is an essential resource for all clinical staff to consult in reducing the risk associated with their work. It provides practical resources such as ‘how to’ guides, but also touches on theoretical discussions. It is primarily directed to practitioners in the area of fertility treatment, clinicians, embryologists, nurses, counsellors and administrators, but is also relevant to policy-makers, commissioners of health services, researchers in this field and biomedical ethicists.
