This activity is the third in a planned series of webinars for advanced practice nurses and other health care professionals.  

The use of PGS as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of infertility and embryo selection is rapidly evolving and increasingly utilized and requested by patients and reproductive clinics. However, the standards of care and guidelines for preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) of embryos created through IVF are limited, with few randomized controlled trials, and the risks/alternatives/benefits of use must be individualized for each patient. In addition, there are limited studies to guide the decision-making process, inconsistency between IVF programs and patient requests and possible understanding of risk, alternatives and benefits; continually changing practice recommendations; and inconsistency in perceived and real patient and/or clinic benefits of genetic screening.  This activity will provide learners with an explanation of autosomal recessive screening of infertility patient(s) and the available interventions for the treatment of positively screened patients through IVF. Participants will also explore the utilization of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) including purpose, outcome, risks, alternatives, limitations, benefits, and associated sequela including social, financial, and ethical implications that are associated with the patient decision-making process.

The activity will consist of a didactic presentation followed by a question and answer session.
