The New Normal: What you need to know as a Fertility Nurse in 2017

April 28th, 2017

8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Hart House, University of Toronto

Fertility nursing continues to advance in leaps and bounds. As nurses we need to be up to date with every aspect of the fertility field, and the ever changing landscape of this advancing science.

Come join your fertility colleagues for an educational day on the topics which concern us the most, including: male infertility, embryology, applying research to practice, and the work-up of fertility patients.

One of the highlights of our day will be Dr Rachel Green’s interactive session “A compassionate relationship in the service of change: Cultivating Empathy”. A second highlight of the day will include a facilitated panel discussion on the controversial topic of waitlist management for treatment patients.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided on-site in the beautiful Music Room of the Hart House. You will also have plenty of time to meet new people and reconnect with your colleagues.
