Programme

HRT for the over 60s – Prof Anne MacGregor

With all the recent hype around HRT, an increasing number of women over 60 are wondering if they’ve missed out and whether they can, or indeed should, be taking HRT. Every woman is an individual with her own set of risks and benefits, so there is really no one size fits all approach to initiating HRT in this population. The session will look at the most important points you need to consider in your discussions with women over 60 requesting HRT.

Complex medical issue, including CVD – Dr Olivia Hum

As HRT has evolved the number of women who can take it safely has increased, including those with complex medical issues. This session will look at some of the most frequent questions that come up on the BMS members’ forum, including prescribing after MI, SCAD and stroke, as well as other long term or complex medical conditions. 

Practical prescribing and monitoring – how, why and when? – Dr Katie Barber

The initial prescription is just the start and women will frequently return with side effects, issues and queries. This session includes hints and tips to ensure patient compliance, when to undertake blood tests, how to interpret blood tests and advise, best practice for HRT reviews (including the role of pharmacists, audits in primary care, dose conversions) and also include a ‘what we do on the shop floor’ discussion to manage the oddities that are seen every day.
