Menopause education for GPs – Dr Tosin Taiwo & Dr Louise Newson
In this episode, Dr Louise Newson is delighted to chat to Dr Tosin Taiwo who is a doctor currently in his third year of GP training. Dr Tosin has an orthopaedic background as he used to work as an orthopaedic registrar before changing to general practice. Since beginning his training as a GP, Dr Tosin has developed a keen interest in lifestyle medicine.
Dr Tosin discusses menopause education for GPs and how much he learnt from Dr Newson’s ‘Confidence in the Menopause’ online education programme with FourteenFish. He feels like it should be renamed the “epiphany video”!
Despite his busy career in General Practice, Dr Tosin also hosts his own Podcast series, called ‘Dr Tosin’s Podcast – Healthy Living Beyond Medicine.’
Dr Tosin’s Three Take Home Tips for fellow GPs in training:
- Watch Dr Newson’s ‘Confidence in the Menopause’ video in the FourteenFish programme
- HRT reduces the future risk of Cardiovascular disease in women who take HRT, within 10 years of the menopause, by up to 50%
- Always have perimenopause/ menopause in mind when seeing women in their mid 40s, especially those that present with non-specific symptoms or ‘tired all the time’ symptoms
