Most couples enrolled in Assisted Reproductive Technologies’ ART treatments need to make decisions regarding embryo disposition, as they are asked to sign a consent form about embryo donation for research. Beyond the current assessment of patients’ individual experiences and levels of satisfaction with care delivery, we argue that it is crucial to provide stakeholders in health systems with feedback on patients’ views about legal and regulatory frameworks. Such knowledge will lend credence and robustness to the consent that the couples give, and will contribute to the implementation of informed relational ethics in clinical practice and to improved patient-centredness in the field of ART.
