We collaborate with the Academic Medical Centre (AMC) in the context of scientific research on foetal tissue. There are institution regulations for this. Participation by patients is entirely voluntary and on an informed consent basis. Permission for the provision of tissue from the abortion curettage is requested after the decision for an abortion has happened and has no influence on the abortion treatment.
Further, the Beahuis & Bloemenhovekliniek cooperates with two studies of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Utrecht in the field of abortion care, namely ‘Healthy and Well’ and ‘Decision-making on Pregnancy’, and participates in the advisory committee.
