If you would like to know more about the menopause, you don’t need to leave your home for a presentation.
The next University Hospitals Dorset’s Understanding Health talks: ‘Understanding menopause’ will be online on Wednesday 1 December at 5.30pm.
Amanda Hillard, menopause nurse specialist at UHD, will talk about what menopause is, what happens and some of the symptoms people can experience. She will also explain what the long term affects are, for example osteoporosis, and what treatments are currently available and how they work.
Amanda said: “There has been a lot of media coverage about menopause recently and it’s brilliant that awareness is being raised.
“Many people associate menopause with hot flushes but it’s so much more than that. This talk will be useful for anyone going through menopause or those who wants to understand more about the natural process people go through. Families and friends may also find it useful to help their understanding and how they can support their mum, daughter, sister, partner or friend when they are going through this.”
The free event will run via Microsoft Teams and is due to take place on Wednesday 1 December from 5.30-6.30pm. It’s open to everyone and the link to the event can be found at www.uhd.nhs.uk/news/events. There is no need to book, simply click on the Teams link at 5.30pm on the day. A recording of the talk will also be available on the website after the event.
