Abstract

 Background: In order to empower infertile individuals and provide high quality patient-centered INFERTILITY care, it is necessary to recognize and meet infertile individuals’ EDUCATIONal needs. This study aims to examine INFERTILITY patients’ KNOWLEDGE and subsequently their EDUCATION needs given their attitudinal approach to INFERTILITY EDUCATION in terms of patients who undergo assisted reproduction treatment.Materials and Methods: This descriptive study enrolled 150 subjects by convenience sampling of all patients who received their first assisted reproductive treatment between July and September 2015 at a referral fertility clinic, Royan Institute, Tehran, Iran. We used a questionnaire that measured fertility and INFERTILITY information (8 questions) as well as ATTITUDE toward EDUCATION on the causes and treatment of INFERTILITY (5 questions). Chi-square, independent sample t test, and one way ANOVA analyses were conducted to examine differences by sex. P<0.05 was considered statistically significant.Results: Total mean KNOWLEDGE was 3.08±0.99. Clients’ responses indicated that the highest mean KNOWLEDGE scores related to KNOWLEDGE of factors that affected pregnancy (3.97±1.11) and INFERTILITY treatment (3.97±1.16). The lowest mean KNOWLEDGE scores related to KNOWLEDGE of the natural reproductive cycle (2.96 ± 1.12) and anatomy of the genital organs (2.94±1.16). Most females (92.1%) and males (83.3%) were of the opinion that INFERTILITY EDUCATION programs should include causes of INFERTILITY and types of treatment associated with diagnostic and laboratory procedures. No statistically significant difference existed between male and female participants (P=0.245).Conclusion: Most participants in this study expressed awareness of factors that affect pregnancy and INFERTILITY treatment. It is imperative to educate and empower infertile individuals who seek reproduction treatment in terms of INFERTILITY causes and types of treatment, as well as diagnostic and laboratory procedures to enable them to make informed decisions about their assisted reproductive procedures.
