Oncologists' Role in Patient Fertility Care: A Call to Action
Published Online: January 28, 2016
Oncofertility is a term coined just a few years ago to address the urgent, unmet needs of young cancer patietns who were offered life-preserving but fertility-threatening treatments.

This issue has largely been addressed and the remaining barriers are few.
