Despite international evidence about the benefits of fertility preservation and current national and international guidelines there are several barriers that have prevented the implementation of equitable fertility preservation practice around the world. These barriers include a lack of referral pathways and models of care for oncofertility services, the need for more collaborations between cancer and fertility doctors, inequitable access based on cost and a lack of oncofertility training. 

This study, led by Antoinette Anazodo in Sydney and involving many other experts from across the world including TYAC members, aims to develop an international multidisciplinary oncofertility medical and psychosocial competency framework. This will enable the development and implementation of fertility preservation models of care, referral pathways and professional development for oncofertility services.

The survey should take around 40 minutes to complete (although it does not have to be completed in one sitting) and every contribution will make a huge difference to the development of the framework.
