Success rates following IVF treatment have increased significantly since its early days, largely as a result of the introduction and use of ovarian stimulation. Controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) now plays a major role in optimising IVF outcomes by facilitating control of different aspects of the process and increasing the number of oocytes available. COS aims to achieve maximal success with minimal side effects. Progress in and understanding of ovarian physiology, as well as new advances in ovarian stimulation strategies have made it possible for healthcare professionals to achieve the optimal outcomes for patients.

The EXCEMED blended education approach reinforces concepts from different angles, using a multi-format, multi-discipline and multi-profession approach to progressive learning and access to a network of experts. The aim of this learner-centred programme is to enhance clinical practice by exploring the ideal outcomes desired by patients, embryologists, and clinicians following ART, with individualised approaches towards attaining these goals. We hope you will enjoy this interactive and dynamic programme.

Learning objectives

• Understand how laboratory and clinical outcomes define success in ART

• Describe the different elements of ART and how they contribute to success

• Understand the changing approaches to ART and how they affect clinical practice

• Tailor the best protocol for patients undergoing ART by understanding the choices available and selecting the most appropriate for the individual patient
