This course provides an essential understanding of the diagnosis of menopausal symptoms and the treatment options available.
|Overview:||The BMS PPMC course is designed for registered healthcare professionals seeking an in-depth and comprehensive grounding in post reproductive health. It is suitable for doctors, nurses and pharmacists working in the UK or Ireland who wish to understand the essential foundations of menopause care.|
The PPMC course is evidence based and incorporates recommendations for best practice from the NICE Guideline Menopause: Diagnosis and Management, published in November 2015. A reflective and pragmatic approach will be encouraged, and delegates will learn to apply their new knowledge in a way that is relevant to their own working environment. The course carries 12 CPD credits.
This course also provides the theoretical component of the BMS Principles & Practice of Menopause Care training programme or the FSRH Menopause Special Skills training module.
|Course format:||Delegates will have access to professionally recorded lecture videos for the seven course modules, with PDF lecture slides, via the BMS website from 21 September to 9 October 2022. They can watch the lectures at a time convenient for them, before they attend an interactive Zoom Q&A/case discussion day on Wednesday 5 October 2022 09:15 – 16:30.|
The Zoom day offers a Q&A session for each of the seven modules to clarify information in the lecture videos and reinforce understanding. Delegates will be able to pre-submit questions via the BMS website and there will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions on the day itself. The use of Zoom breakout rooms will allow for small group HRT prescribing and case study discussion to further learning.
Delegates must watch the lectures and attend the Zoom day to meet the requirements for course completion.
