Menopause

Menopause Module Registration Open

As part of an overall review of ICGP education and to continue our ongoing commitment, we have updated menopause education for GPs. The updated curriculum will address the latest evidence base to ensure that patient care for menopause consultations is based on the most up-to-date clinical guidelines.

Register here – closes on Monday, 03 October 2022

Topics to include the following:

  • Diagnosis of menopause and peri-menopause
  • Lifestyle management
  • Prescribing hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Alternatives to HRT
  • Testosterone replacement
  • Osteoporosis
  • Premature ovarian insufficiency
  • Sexual health
  • Post-menopausal contraception

This module is delivered as part of the Community Gynaecology course, and you can choose to register for the full course or only those modules that you have an interest in.

This module attracts 4 CPD credits and 0.5-day GMS study leave.

Education will be delivered in a blended format with short videos from experts in the field which can be viewed in a GP's own time. A live webinar-based format will follow with an emphasis on clinical case discussions. Course participants will have ample opportunity to engage directly with the experts during these case discussions.
