Confidence in the Menopause course for healthcare professionals

Published: 30th May 2018

I ran this course a few weeks ago and the feedback was so positive I have arranged more dates. Many healthcare professionals have little understanding about the menopause as our undergraduate training about the menopause is so poor. Their knowledge about body identical HRT is often scanty which again is a result in insufficient education. There is an urgent need for this to improve – although the menopause is a natural process for women and is not a disease, going through the menopause has risks to our health such as an increased risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and depression. Managing the menopause effectively is paramount for women’s future health and wellbeing.
