Ethical and Medical Challenges: Access to Fertility Services by Transgender Persons
Transgender persons have the same interests in having children and accessing fertility services for fertility preservation and reproduction as others. Increasing acceptance for individuals to fulfill their desire to transition from their gender assigned at birth has brought the issue of reproduction and family building in transgender persons to the forefront for providers of fertility services. In this course, Dr. Maria Bustillo discusses access to fertility services by transgender persons and the many complex psychological, medical, surgical, ethical and legal issues related to their fertility and fertility preservation.
Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Respiratory Therapists, Social Workers, Medical Students and other interested healthcare professionals.
- Explain the nature of fertility and fertility preservation services that are available and feasible to provide for transgender individuals.
- Address issues with respect to timing of fertility and fertility preservation services in the transition from one gender to the other.
- Identify potential medical, ethical, legal and psychological risks associated with providing fertility and fertility preservation services to transgender individuals.
