A new consultation document addresses how time-lapse videos of embryo development are shared with IVF patients. This is a work-in-progress and we are seeking feedback on the document until July 5th, 2023.

You can find the consultation document in the Open Consultation page. To contribute to this consultation, please email rhb-study@qmul.ac.uk or use the contact details at the end of the consultation document.

This consultation builds on a workshop that took place in January 2023, organised in collaboration with the Progress Educational Trust. Participants at this workshop included a diverse range of professionals from the field of assisted reproduction.

Drawing on findings from interviews, the focus of the workshop was on how IVF patients feel about receiving time-lapse videos of embryo development during IVF treatment. In particular, we focused on when, where and how these videos are shared and received. Workshop participants were invited to reflect on their own practices of sharing time-lapse videos with their patients.
