TreatmentSOS: New Fertility Preservation

June 24, 201451 min
When you consider that cancer patients often make life-sacrifices after diagnosis, losing their fertility is one of the most extreme for patients hoping to have children. Dr. Gwendolyn Quinn, Moffitt Cancer Center’s Health Outcomes & Behavior Program, helps patients (men and women) make informed decisions before treatment about fertility preservation. Her research includes reproductive health, barriers to clinical trial participation, ethical issues in genetic testing for hereditary cancer, and the use of PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis--a fascinating discussion!). FP education reduces decisional regret and improves well-being, even if patients decide not to proceed. Joni live M-F at 2:00 p.m. ET on www.W4CS.com. www.JoniAldrich.com
