Activity Description

Menopause is a normal condition involving the permanent end of menstrual cycles due to the cessation of the production of reproductive hormones from the ovaries for at least 12 consecutive months. It is a diagnosis that is made retrospectively. Menopause occurs in all menstruating females due to nonpathologic estrogen deficiency. Many women experience symptoms for several years before menopause, which is marked by the final menstrual period. Most women experience vasomotor symptoms, but menopause can affect many different organ systems. This activity reviews the presentation, evaluation, and management of menopause and stresses the role of an interprofessional team approach to evaluating, treating, and improving care for women.

Clinicians will explore the various symptoms women may experience in the years leading up to menopause and will gain comprehensive insights into the normal condition of menopause. Participants will acquire a heightened appreciation for the complexities of menopausal care, ensuring they are well-equipped to navigate the challenges and provide evidence-based, patient-centered solutions in clinical practice.
