Menopause Special Skills Course

This course will now be delivered virtually and provides the module’s theory component

19-20 MAY 2021  |  ONLINE  |  £455

Following the ongoing restrictions on face-to-face contact due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to deliver the Menopause Special Skills Course virtually.
This course will provide you with knowledge and confidence to advise and treat women before, during and after menopause within your working environment. It is aimed at healthcare professionals who primarily work in the field of women’s health, including doctors, nurses or pharmacists. The course provides the theory component of the FSRH menopause special skills training module. Clinical training and assessment of competence can lead to the ‘Certificate in Menopause Care of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology’.

Meet the experts

The medical course organiser is Dr Sarah Gray, who has developed this training programme since its inception in 2003. She is a GP and previously the Clinical Lead for the Menopause Service in Cornwall. She is an accredited Faculty Registered Primary Trainer in Menopause. Dr Gray will be joined by Dr Jane Davis, who is also a GP and Primary Trainer in Menopause. Jane holds the BMS/FSRH Advanced Certificate in Menopause Care and was originally trained by Sarah. Additional experienced clinicians will be available for discussion and to answer questions throughout the two days.

Why should I consider this course?

This course is suitable for a doctor or independently prescribing nurse who is providing women’s healthcare whether in primary care, sexual health, community or acute gynaecology settings.

The course material is entirely NICE NG23 compliant. The format promotes discussion of how the recommendations can be applied to every day clinical practice. It is both pragmatic and practical in outlook. You will be sent a short list of resources to provide baseline information and enhance the experience. Speakers summarise each topic to the whole group which then divides into workshop groups of no more than 10 delegates plus a menopause expert to discuss a variety of related clinical scenarios. This provides the opportunity to handle products, ask questions and really make sure that you understand.

This course will provide you with knowledge and confidence to advise and treat women before, during and after menopause within your working environment.

It will count towards the reaccreditation requirement of the Diploma of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) and provide evidence for professional revalidation.

The course was developed as the theory component of the FSRH Special Skills Module in Menopause. In conjunction with an approved Primary Trainer, additional clinical training and satisfactory assessment of competence, it can lead to the award of a Certificate in Menopause. This would support you to provide leadership within a practice or work within an existing menopause service.

If you are inspired to do more, this course plus extended training can lead to a FSRH Advanced Certificate in Menopause. It accredits sufficient competence to provide expert advice as recommended by NICE or lead a specialist menopause service.

What is the Menopause Special Skills Course?

The overall combined Theory and Clinical Training module is aimed at healthcare professionals who primarily work in the field of women’s health. Delegates on the theoretical course we are offering here will receive a certificate of attendance which, if followed by the completion of competence-based clinical training and assessment, will earn a ‘Certificate in Menopause Care’.

Our course provides the theory component of the FSRH menopause special skills training module. It will enhance the practice and clinical confidence of any doctor or experienced nurse working in primary care or women’s health. It will explain the evidence base and encourage a reflective and pragmatic approach using an interactive lecture and workshop format.

Subsequent clinical training for those wishing to proceed to certification can be organised by contacting the Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare. Extended training to the level of an Advanced Certificate would be required to accept complex referrals from colleagues in the role of a Menopause Specialist.
