Last Update: 10/11/2018
  • All contents published on We are Surrogacy (WAS) will be accompanied by graphic illustrations, pictures or explainer videos that allow the reader to understand in more detail the most complex aspects of Reproductive Medicine and Surrogacy.
  • Pictures, illustrations, and other graphic resources contain an individual description in an external webpage from the main article. When someone clicks on the graphic resource, a new page will open to see in better detail the graphic resource and read the description. The purpose of this measure is for the graphic resource to have an individual meaning in case a user access an illustration directly.
  • In case it is necessary to add other contents to a publication that have not been created or provided to We are Surrogacy, we will request the corresponding authorization to get the right of publication and will quote the source of information.
  • All publications, forum threads or replies are linked to related posts or any other supplemental content in order to allow the user to understand or a particular response or get more info.

Up-to-date content

  • All publications include the date of update and last revision
  • Publications are updated whenever we are aware that a particular medical procedure has changed, or if we consider it appropriate to provide readers with more info. By doing this, we guarantee up-to-date information in all cases. Moreover, if a doctor considers a particular question from a user relevant enough, he or she can add it to the “FAQs from users” section of each article in order for it to be seen along with the main content, thereby being visible for other users.
  • To be able to add new quality contents, doctors, editors, and project managers must update their knowledge in the field regularly. To this end, attending the world’s most important events is crucial, including the ones organized by the ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology). The following are some certificates of attendance of the Project Managers: [PDF 1] [PDF 2].

Well organized contents that readers can comprehend

  • The ultimate goal is that users understand the information they find. To achieve this, we ask doctors and specialists to use a professional but comprehensible language for each publication, illustrat9ion or video-interview, as if they were addressing to a patient at their office, instead of speaking as if they were giving a conference or speech to the scientific community.
  • All posts contain a Table of Contents to help structure the contents and makes it easier for users to read them.
  • Information must be clear and well organized, with titles and subtitles that create a hierarchy of contents.

Advertising through contents is now allowed

  • We don’t allow self-promotion of medical services through the articles.. Clinics, sponsors, or medical professionals that participate or contribute with contents to our project are not allowed to advertise their services or clinics, or self-promote, using these contents. Thus, the purpose of the articles published, replies to FAQs or videos is to offer medical information and answer questions from patients from a medical viewpoint. Advertising is permitted on the spaces enable for that purpose.
  • All ads and contents published for advertising purposes will be duly identified with the text “Advertising” in order not to interfere with the contents or mislead the user.

Pluralism, impartiality & participation of users

  • We believe in pluralism as a tool to boost the quality of our contents. Most of the articles that you will find at inviTRA have been supervised by several doctors (correctly identified) that work at multiple clinics or medical facilities (authorized as well). This adds a variety of viewpoints and professional experiences to the contents that help to boost the quality of our publications, as well as to make patients understand that medical issues can be solved via different treatments. These differences will depend on the doctor’s expertise or the resources he or she has at hand.
  • After many years on the road creating medical contents, we are aware that a doctor can provide solutions based on the resources available at the medical facility he or she works at. In other words, the solutions to offer are dependent on the availability of resources at their disposal. So, thanks to pluralism and the participation of multiple doctors, clinics and hospitals, we preserve the impartiality of our contents and improve their quality.
  • Our publications allow the participation of the community as well. We believe that communication is a two-way thing. Users must be able to post comments, raise questions, or provide their experience in relation to a particular content published by a doctor. Multiple participation of users enriches and improves the overall quality of our contents, thereby adding different viewpoints to a single topic (professional and patient perspectives).
  • All publications, forum threads or replies can be easily shared on social media.

Moderation controls, comments & forum

  • We perform a thorough moderation control, with a strict moderation protocol for the comments posted on posts and forum threads to prevent the publication of inaccurate or misleading information.
