Lui, Steve, Blyth, Eric and Chirema, Kathleen Dympna (2014) Infertility patients’ motivations for and experiences of cross border reproductive services (CBRS): a partial trans-theoretical model. Fertility and Sterility, 102 (3). e58. ISSN 0015-0282

Cross border reproductive services (CBRS) is a growing phenomenon. CBRS is the travel by infertile patients from one country or jurisdiction where access to treatment is limited or unavailable to another country or jurisdiction to seek infertility services. Both the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM, 2013) and European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (Pennings et al., 2008) have provided guidance and recommendations for CBRS. There are numerous reasons for CBRS (Pennings et al., 2008) and CBRS is an under-researched and under-theorised area (Inhorn and Gurtin, 2011) of health research.This study provided themes on the decision making process of CBRS patients and contextualised them within a partial trans-theoretical model (Prochaska and DiClemente, 1983).
