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) – based on the BMS Vision for menopause care in UK.

The PPMC comprises progressive theory and practical training components designed to reflect modern NHS practice and meet the ever-increasing requirement for quality menopause education:
