In this narrative, Professor Jaime King explores her personal experience as a patient undergoing in vitro fertilization after studying the procedure as part of her doctoral dissertation in Health Policy and Ethics. Professor King reveals the challenges of being a patient when faced with medical uncertainty and a more paternalistic minded physician. She then argues in favor of changing informed consent law and physician practice patterns to promote the use of shared decision-making in order to improve medical decision-making in the context of IVF.
