Founded in 2001, the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE) seeks to improve the quality of care patients receive while developing and advancing fertility service available in the region.  ASPIRE further creates a forum for medical professionals to communicate experiences and needed information as well as raising awareness of infertility treatment options among both professionals, patients and the general public.

At ASPIRE, Donati will present her research entitled "You Have Millions We Only Want One!   A Small Clinic's Experience in Establishing a Sperm Donor Recruitment Program" and offer insights into Fertility Solutions Sunshine Coast efforts, including their struggles and successes, to establish a local donor sperm recruitment program.

Donati is honored that her paper was selected for presentation at this year's Congress. She looks forward to sharing with the leading health professionals in the world and hopes to use the opportunity to continue making a difference in the lives of her patients at the IVF (in vitro fertilization) Sunshine Coast Fertility Clinic.

Donati travels frequently to venues such as the World Congress on Human Reproduction and the Fertility Society of Australia; consistently delivering various presentations regarding IVF,  reproductive solutions and nurse management topics. Her in-depth knowledge in fertility care makes her a much sought-after speaker for nurses' training and education in both Australia and New Zealand.

Her 20 plus years of experience, coupled with her position as co-owner, allows Donati the freedom to tailor Fertility Solutions Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg to the desires, expectations, and hopes of her patients. The Fertility Solutions team offers a combination of the best fertility specialists and the latest technology all with one goal in mind for patients – the starting or growing of a healthy, happy family.

In their efforts to establish a local donor sperm recruitment program, Donati and the team at Fertility Solutions Sunshine Coast and encountered numerous complexities, including the fact that donors must agree to contact by offspring as well as legal issues in Australia regarding the buying and selling of human tissues. These issues and how they were addressed will be discussed in the presentation.

"Though moral and ethical issues arise in relation to both recruited and imported donor sperm; the local demand for this service is becoming ever more apparent" Donati explains.

The experiences and results which Donati is presenting is an exploration into the process taken by the team at Fertility Solutions Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg in the establishment of the sperm donation program. Each step of the way, the team considered "legal, social, moral, and ethical issues" that presented throughout the development of the program.  She further delivers the reasoning and rationale of decisions made during the establishment of the recruitment program.

It is hoped that the clinic's experiences in establishing a sperm donor recruitment program will encourage potential donors to come to the aid of patients facing fertility challenges while encouraging IVF and fertility medical practitioners to explore the benefits of local sperm donor recruitment programs.
