Ferring Pharmaceuticals and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association Join Together to Launch Nurse Liaison Program

Program to Launch During RESOLVE's National Infertility Awareness Week(R), April 25 - May 2 Across the Country

PARSIPPANY, N.J., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Ferring Pharmaceuticals, which offers the broadest portfolio of fertility treatments in the U.S., has partnered with leading patient advocate organization, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, to launch the RESOLVE Nurse Liaison Program during National Infertility Awareness Week(R) (NIAW), April 25-May 2. The program was developed to create a network of nurses from every Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) member infertility center in the United States to serve as RESOLVE ambassadors in their medical practice. Since nurses play a crucial role in the patient care process, the program was designed to arm them with relevant information about treatment options and valuable educational materials for infertility patients.

Nurses who enroll in the RESOLVE Nurse Liaison Program will receive e-communication on a regular basis with up-to-date patient education materials and other available resources. In addition, RESOLVE will periodically ask for feedback from nurses on the current state of patient education in infertility and gaps that they see in patient's knowledge. As a member of this valuable program, nurses will be prominently featured on RESOLVE's Web site and have the opportunity to contribute articles and speak at RESOLVE events.

"RESOLVE is proud to collaborate with Ferring Pharmaceuticals especially during National Infertility Awareness Week(R). Our goal is to spread information about infertility and its treatments to those fighting the disease of infertility," said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE's executive director. "We are thrilled to be partnering with a leader in the field of infertility who can help RESOLVE provide vital information to the nurses who are on the front lines of the patient care journey."

"Ferring is pleased to be working with RESOLVE to give nurses the resources they need to enhance the patient care journey," said Olivier Delannoy, vice president, Infertility Business Unit at Ferring. "As a leader in providing patients with access to affordable and user-friendly treatment options, Ferring remains committed to supporting the reproductive community with the tools they need to help simplify the patient treatment process."

Nurses who are interested in becoming a member of the RESOLVE Nurse Liaison Program can visit www.resolve.org/nurseprogram. Upon receipt of the registration form, RESOLVE will send a program welcome packet that outlines the details of the program.
