Every effort has been made to ensure that this resource provides up to date and accurate information at the date of publication (September, 2019). The CFM team will continually review emerging evidence to ensure that accurate information is presented and will update the resource annually, unless any new evidence emerges that warrants earlier updating. The next planned update will take place in September 2020.
The development and evaluation of the Cancer, Fertility and Me decision aid, funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research has been completed and alternative forms of the decision aid are currently being developed.
