Course Overview

This Course describes the menopause and provides a comprehensive guide to its aetiology and clinical features, as well as reviewing the use and efficacy of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Topics include:

  • The normal ovarian cycle
  • The role of oestrogen
  • Ovarian failure
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Management and treatment
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Myths and misinformation

Target audience

All health professionals, in particular, those practising in general medical practices and women’s health settings.

Purpose

Improve understanding of the menopause and to review the appropriate use of hormone replacement therapy to enhance the care and treatment of women who suffer from unwanted symptoms.

Need

All women undergo the menopause at some stage and many will be affected by the consequent changes that occur as the ovaries fail and natural oestrogen production declines. Some of these symptoms can be serious, for example, osteoporosis; and it is important that the processes are well understood along with treatment options and management.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the changes that occur at menopause
  • Identify the signs and symptoms of ovarian failure
  • Explain the rationale for the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as a treatment for ovarian failure
