Empowering women about the menopause [with sign language]
Dr Louise Newson explains the importance of empowering women about the menopause
I am Dr. Louise Newson. I am a GP and Menopause Expert in West Midlands.
I think a lot of it is down to people’s training and their understanding about the menopause.
So women don’t understand much, but unfortunately the doctors too don’t.
But it is improving and certainly the NICE Guidance has helped and there is among the GPs that I have talked to, a thirst and appetite for more knowledge and information.
But again, it is just…trying to get the message over and empowering people with more information so they can give the right choices and the women can make the right choices about the menopause.
