Menopause education is not mandatory for healthcare professionals. Dr Newson discusses the importance of menopause education with Menopause & Wellbeing Centre Practice Manager, Sarah Baker who previously worked in a private hospital and ran educational events for doctors on various subjects. Sarah describes how women’s health events were always popular and, in her experience, doctors have a real thirst for knowledge regarding the menopause and safe prescribing of HRT.
Sarah Baker’s Three Take Home Tips to Help You on Your Menopause Journey:
- Do your research! There are so many great resources available, such as menopausedoctor.co.uk, and if you have the right information it will help when you visit your GP.
- Be brave and talk to other people – you may find a lot of your friends are going through the same thing and you can help and support each other.
- Talk to your family and involve your partner. You are not on your own and there is help out there!
