This menopause education programme is aimed at any healthcare professional who sees women and who would like to formalise and accredit their learning and consulting skills around the area of the menopause.

Many GPs, nurses and pharmacists feel deskilled in this area as we have moved through nearly two decades of the media demonising HRT. The result of this is that many women now struggle to access up-to-date information about the menopause in general, as well as HRT. Given the menopause affects half the population and has huge implications for women’s physical and psychological health there needs to be much greater access for women to help at this crucial time in their lives from their primary care team.

General practice is a hugely busy and demanding place for all who work in it and education needs to be readily available, simple to access, relevant, evidence-based and fun. This remote menopause education programme aims to deliver that in a simple modular package consisting of numerous lectures and a series of different video-based e-consultations with MCQ assessment. This is CPD accredited with a certificate received after completing each section.

This module takes the healthcare professional into the consultation room with a doctor / nurse and their patient. Through in-depth case studies, brought to life through video resources, the healthcare professional will learn how to assess and manage women in the menopause and perimenopause.

Since The Menopause Charity launched in May 2021, over 20,000 professionals have accessed the course and a recent survey of course participants from over 20 different professions provided an average course score of 9/10 with 97% willing to recommend the course to a colleague.

As of September 2021, we are pleased to announce the course is now available and to ALL healthcare professionals across the globe for free!
