    Abstract : In the four papers presented in this dissertation I analyze and discuss various value statements and moral stances, which I regard as unjustifiably harmful for persons with Autism and obstacles for the creation of an Autism-friendly society. In the papers I try to show that the positions underpinning the Autism-phobic moral stances are not warranted and cannot be defended in a good way. READ MORE

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to assess the quality of life and quality of care from a patient perspective, in relation to IVF treatment. This was done by: - assessing infertile couples’ short-term emotional responses to their first IVF treatment, the relationship between partners at different stages of the first treatment, and differences/similarities between the reactions of men and women as to whether or not a pregnancy was achieved - investigating whether a male infertility diagnosis had any influence on men’s experience of infertility and its treatment, view of life, relationships, self-image and psychological well-being, when compared with men in couples where the diagnosis was female, mixed or unexplained infertility - developing a validated instrument (QPP-IVF) for measuring patient-centered quality of care in an IVF-programme for both men and women - investigating patient-centered quality of care during IVF treatments as evaluated by men and women Method: Papers I and II were part of a prospective, longitudinal study carried out between 1999 and 2002 at the Reproductive Medicine Unit, Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

    Author : Thorir Hardarson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : IVF; oocyte; embryo; blastocyst; human; FISH; aneuploidy;

    Abstract : The success rate of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) has gradually increased due to basic research in preembryonic biology and the introduction of new methods, both technical and medical. However, further research is needed to establish which preembryos are developmentally most competent in order to be able to maintain the pregnancy rate while only a single preembryo is being transferred.
