To coincide with World Menopause Day in October 2020 the BMS launched a new training programme for healthcare professionals – Principles and Practices of Menopause Care (PPMC). It features an online competency-based curriculum and e-portfolio, designed to reflect modern NHS practice and meet the ever-increasing requirement for quality menopause education.

The PPMC is based on the BMS Vision for menopause care in UK and it comprises progressive theory and practical training components:

  • The BMS PPMC theory course for HCPs seeking an in-depth and comprehensive grounding in menopause care.  This theory course is also ‘stand-alone’ and it is suitable for doctors, nurses and pharmacists wishing to understand the foundations of menopause care
  • The BMS Certificate for doctors and nurses who undertake menopause consultations in general practice, including NHS and private clinics. It is also suitable for pharmacists (clinical and independent prescribers).
  • The BMS Advanced Certificate for doctors, independent nurse prescribers and pharmacist independent prescribers who wish to provide specialist menopause care, including management of complex cases, and who may have career ambitions to lead a menopause service
