This meeting endeavours to provide answers to the most commonly asked and most difficult questions in the management of post reproductive health. These will be put into the context of the Guideline on the Treatment and Management of the Menopause, published in 2015 by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the British Menopause Society guidelines on hormone replacement therapy published in 2016.

Overview: Nationally and internationally recognised speakers will cover controversial questions in important areas such as:

  • Pathophysiology of the menopause
  • Risks of hormone dependent malignancies
  • Cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis and cognitive problems
  • Premature ovarian insufficiency: diagnosis and management
  • Lifestyle, complementary therapies, HRT and alternatives for managing the menopause

The meeting will closely follow the recommended syllabus and is suitable for the theoretical component of the BMS/RCOG ‘Menopause’ Advanced Training Skills Module (ATSM) and the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare Advanced Menopause Certificate.

Case studies and breakout workshops will be used to illustrate management principles and develop care pathways for routine and complex menopause related problems.
