The clinical editor of our Women’s Health journal, Dr Louise Newson, is to run two one-day courses on the topic of the menopause, with the first taking place later this month.

The course, titled ‘Confidence in Menopause Management’, is an evidence-based approach to choosing the right treatment for menopausal women. Delegates will receive a certificate upon course completion.

The agenda includes examining why menopause is a priority in primary care and how best to manage it, benefits and risks of HRT and practical case studies for delegates to put their knowledge into practice. Delegates will also have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

The first course takes place on Tuesday 19 June at the Hilton Hotel, Leicester, with the second being held on Tuesday 25 September at 15Hatfields, London.

The course is aimed at GPs who are leading menopause within their practice and nurses with an interest in menopause.
