Introduction to Quality Management in ART Clinics

Chapter

Abstract

Nowadays, the demand for ART treatments has increased dramatically. With the technological advances and widespread flow of information, more and more people are aware of the treatment options they may have to solve their infertility problems. While in the past many couples would simply conform to the fact that they would remain childless throughout their lives, today couples simply do not give up hope and try to fulfill their dream of parenthood using all available resources.
