Management of Menopause

Objectives

Obstetrician-gynecologists have not had adequate training over the past decade and need accurate and relevant information about the consequences of menopause and the opportunity provided at the onset of menopause to institute prevention strategies. The unit Management of Menopause provides up-to-date information about important consequences of menopause and what options are available to patients for intervention.

The unit explains the difference in the risk benefit equation in prescribing hormones to younger and older postmenopausal women, and provides information about types of hormone regimens and alternatives for treating menopausal symptoms and preventing osteoporosis.

Outcomes of this unit are to:

  • Improve care for the post-menopausal patient
  • Inform about prescribing hormones
  • Be competent in choosing hormone therapy and alternatives for postmenopausal women
