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.
