Irish Cancer Society position and policy statements
Fertility preservation for cancer patients
Cancer treatment can impact on a person’s fertility. As such, the ability to preserve fertility can bring comfort to someone living with cancer, and can be an important factor in planning for quality of life in survivorship. This policy paper provides an overview of guidelines and practices in fertility preservation for cancer patients, and outlines future focused recommendations for fertility preservation.
On 6 November 2020, the Irish Cancer Society facilitated the webinar, Fertility Preservation for Cancer Patients. The webinar included a panel of experts by experience and experts in fertility and medical oncology. Our speakers Karen Sheahan, Dr Renato Bauman, Professor Seamus O’Reilly, Dr Maebh Horan and Geraldine Dunphy talked about their experiences, their medical professional expertise and recommendations for the future.
