DISCPLINES: Embryology Andrology Ultrasound Endocrinology
Information on QA Scheme: Early Human Embryology QAP-2018
Comment = A series of images of human cleavage stage embryos for QC/QA purposes. The images may be either animated gif files, static multiple embryo images or 15 second videos in either avi,mpg or mov formats. The primary question used for quality assessments, the QAP question, is the same calculated embryo scrore parameter [ESP]. This allows for the assessment to be based upon the common criteria embryologists used in their daily embryo grading. The sum of each paramter leads to a calculated value that is submitted for assessment and comparison. The multiple images (4 per page) is used to assess comparative judgements for both transfer and for freezing. A text based summary has been included allowing participants to review how others describe and guage embryos. While the replies to all questions can be probed from conformity, the QAP question forms the basis for internal quality control and for external comparison for both each staff member and for the clinic overall.
Number of enrollments =160 [* This indicates only the number of enrollments. Not all participants will have completed the scheme]
