FSRH Hot Topic Events are a series of half-day conferences providing expert specialist clinical training and essential information. This course has been developed in partnership with the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare Events Committee.

Join us for an empowering half-day event dedicated to menopause care for all. The event aims to address the physiological, emotional, and psychological changes that occur during menopause. You will also explore and learn about the unique experiences of underrepresented groups during this life transition.

Event highlights

Gain a comprehensive understanding of menopause and its impact.

Secure a better understanding of women’s concerns and experiences to enable an improvement of practice and patient outcomes.

Connect with your peers through thought-provoking discussions and case studies.

Developed by clinicians for clinicians, this programme has been developed by leading experts, focused on practical tips and take-home messages. We have also added plenty of time for Q&A.

Learning outcomes:

  • Evaluate a range of treatment options including alternatives to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
  • Discuss complexities of tailoring treatment plans that address both menopause-related symptoms and the challenges posed by concurrent health issues.
  • Explore Menopause Care for patients experiencing premature or delayed menopause and gain insights into tailored treatment approaches.
  • Consider diversity and inclusion when providing menopause care (to include sexuality, gender diversity, neurodiversity, ethnic background, ability).
