This stand-alone theory course will enhance the practice and clinical confidence of registered healthcare professionals working in menopause care, including those working in community, primary and secondary care settings.
It also provides the theory component of the BMS Principles & Practice of Menopause Care training programme or the FSRH Menopause Special Skills training module.
It will explain the evidence base and encourage a reflective and pragmatic approach using an interactive lecture and workshop format. Delegates will learn to apply their new knowledge in a way that is relevant to their working environment.
A certificate of attendance will be issued at the end of the course.
Completion of subsequent competence based practical training and assessment will earn a Certificate in the Principles & Practice of Menopause Care. An Advanced Certificate may be awarded to those who have satisfied the criteria for the Certificate and who have undertaken further competence based practical training.
The Certificate in the Principles & Practice of Menopause Care is suitable for doctors and nurses who undertake menopause consultations in general practice, NHS and private clinics who wish to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in basic menopause care, and who will have access to support for management of complex cases.
The Advanced Certificate is for doctors and nurses who wish to provide independent specialist menopause care, including the management of complex cases, and who wish to lead a service. This includes healthcare professionals working in hospital and community menopause services, GPs with an extended role in menopause (GPwER), and those leading menopause services in private healthcare organisations.
