Préservation de la fertilité chez les femmes atteintes de cancer : description des pratiques de 102 spécialistes exerçant dans les principaux centres d'oncologie en France

Abstract : Fertility preservation in women with cancer: Description of 102 physician practices in major French cancer centers. The incidence of cancer in women of reproductive age is increasing, as well as survival rates. Fertility preservation strategies in patients receiving gonadotoxic treatment remains poorly evaluated in France. This study aims to describe management of fertility preservation through a survey of physicians practicing in major French cancer centers. The analysis of responses from 102 specialists showed that organization of fertility preservation can be improved (patient information, interaction with fertility centers) and that this organization varies between cancer centers. Oncologists indicated that despite their interest for this question, many lack recent knowledge, time, and tools which would allow them to provide patients with needed information. The presence of an oncofertility representative may be a possible solution. Given her skills and expertise, the midwife could hold a key role for this type of patient care.
