Breast cancer, menopause and HRT – confidence in advice and prescribing –  Dr Katie Barber

Explaining breast cancer risks when discussing HRT can sometimes be confusing, particularly when other risks apply. This session will improve confidence in discussing breast cancer risks with women, including those with a personal or family history and those with BRCA.  It will also cover non-hormonal options (what really works) in women who are advised not to, or choose not to, use HRT.

When to start HRT for perimenopause? – Dr Olivia Hum

The concept of perimenopause has taken centre stage over the last 2 years, with much confusion and controversy over when it starts and how to manage it.  The session will discuss some of the hormone changes that take place in perimenopause, how to distinguish between perimenopause and other causes of symptoms, and how and when to manage symptoms.  

Managing urogenital symptoms in menopause – Dr Zoe Schaedel

The majority of women will experience urogenital symptoms and there is often reluctance to discuss these, even with healthcare professionals. Symptoms are underdiagnosed and often undertreated. The session will cover the vulvovaginal and urinary symptoms that can present during the menopause transition, also looking at other causes to consider, to increase confidence in examinations and diagnosis. Treatment options, including the dosing and safety of each, will be discussed, along with top tips to optimise long term vaginal health.
