Social Sciences, Humanities & Oncofertility
An important aim of the Oncofertility Consortium is to build a new interdisciplinary field at the intersection of oncology and reproductive medicine. The creation of this new discipline and the eventual translation of its findings to the clinical setting raise significant issues regarding the social, ethical, and legal implications for patients with cancer and other serious diseases. Social science-based research is vital to understanding cancer patients’ concerns regarding fertility, and how patients, their families, and physicians make fertility-related healthcare decisions at the time of diagnosis.
