Our research has revealed that sharing embryo development videos with patients receiving fertility treatment can have unintended negative consequences. We drafted a document to set out steps that can be taken to minimise this risk to IVF patients. Our aim is to communicate insights around when, where and how patients should receive time-lapse (TL) videos of their embryos, to support care providers and to improve the experience of IVF patients who receive TL as part of their treatment.

This is an ongoing consultation and we will provide regular updates. The progression of this document is indicated in the versions below.

We are seeking feedback on the document until July 5th, 2023. Please get in touch with the research team at: rhb-study@qmul.ac.uk
