About the Course

Nurses who are involved in the health care of perimenopausal women need to stay current in the treatment of the problematic side effects of menopause, lifestyle modifications that might be necessary throughout the stages of menopause, and patient education that can help improve a woman’s overall quality of life. This course will help nurses take an individual approach to assisting women who are progressing through menopause and provide nursing care based on the most up-to-date standards and guidelines in order to help women make appropriate lifestyle choices.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
  • Identify the major components of a nursing assessment appropriate for, and specific to, women who are going through the menopausal transition.
  • Describe modifications to diet, exercise, and personal habits that complement pharmacologic treatment of menopause symptoms.
  • Recognize the benefit of various types of alternative therapies available to women in the menopausal transition.
  • Discuss the relationship between menopause and obesity and the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise.

This course is an extract of, and should not be taken with the course Transition to Menopause, 2nd Edition.
