Abstract

The interdisciplinary field of oncofertility raises unique challenges and presents new opportunities for communicating cutting-edge advances in research and clinical care to scientists, health care providers, and the patient community. Oncofertility professionals, including members of the Oncofertility Consortium, have developed a diverse set of tools, including Web sites, virtual meeting capabilities, and mobile tools, to educate research and medical professionals. Technologies such as social media can also help professionals as they disseminate information to the public about oncofertility issues and options. Effective communication about oncofertility requires recognition of the unique perspectives of patients, providers, researchers, and the public-in this chapter, we discuss these perspectives and describe the array of communication tools that are available to oncofertility professionals.
