  • Overview

    World population prospects were presented at the United Nations in 2013 and addressed directly global fertility projections. Fertility rates for many developed countries continue to decline and are projected to do so for the foreseeable future. As part of updating of the WHO Global Guidelines for infertility diagnosis, management and interventions for treatment initiated in January 2012, Guideline Development Groups were assembled. These focus on female subfertility; male subfertility, ovarian stimulation for ART, IVF and ICSI, IUI with and without ovarian stimulation, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS); endometriosis, fertility interventions; and environmental effects on fertility, with the call to enhance fertility awareness at the country, if not regional, level.

    Substantial educational and practice needs have been identified demonstrating how poor understanding of myriad causes of infertility by clinicians results in their failure to appropriately consider the full value offered to affected women through assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs).

    With this as backdrop, the Global Fertility Academy presents this e-learning module, entitled "Day-to-Day Workflow in the IVF Laboratory: What You Need to Know." This module addresses the day-to-day working of the IVF laboratory, focusing on responsibilities once sperm and egg have been retrieved, including scoring, fertilisation, culture, cryopreservation, and use of time lapse technology.

  • Learning Objectives

    At the completion of this module, participants will be better able to:

    1. Prepare and determine sperm quality
    2. More capably perform IVF and ICSI techniques
    3. Evaluate oocyte morphology, perform fertilisation checks and assess embryo morphologic quality marker
    4. Identify embryos of high implantation potential
    5. Appreciate the value time lapse technology brings to the IVF laboratory
    6. Perform cryopreservation of sperm, oocytes, and embryos
  • Target Audience

    This course is designed to meet the Continuing Medical Education needs of reproductive endocrinologists, embryologists, and fertility treatment specialists.

  • Commercial Support

    This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

    Original Release Date: 19 December 2014

    Expiration Date: 19 December 2016
