HRT for Healthcare Professionals – helping us to help our patients

Overview:

The menopause is a natural part of ageing for women and most commonly occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. Women can experience peri-menopausal symptoms for a few years leading up to it and can live for 30 to 40 years post-menopause. This is a significant amount of time during a woman’s life and it can be both overwhelming and worrying. Despite this, information has been confusing and contradictory leaving women unclear about what options they have.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment to relieve symptoms of the menopause. There has been much uncertainty amongst healthcare professionals around HRT. This recording looks at the background and evidence-based treatment options, so that we can support our patients further.

Learning outcomes:

After the recording, participants will be able to:

  • Identify how to diagnose the perimenopause and menopause
  • Define the common symptoms of the menopause and their consequences
  • Recognise the importance of providing evidence-based treatment to help women manage the symptoms of the menopause
  • Discuss the risks and benefits of HRT
  • Describe the role of oestrogen in reducing cardiovascular and osteoporosis risk in premenopausal women
  • Outline current research and the risks associated with modern HRT in menopausal women
  • Use resources to support HRT prescribing
