Making Every Contact Count for Menopause

Traditionally, menopause is viewed as a specialist medical and clinical condition and as such, most people at the frontline of running support services or initiatives withing the health system, the community, and workplaces, do not routinely ask about menopause.

Through the Making Every Count (MECC) approach, participants will be able to challenge this culture and openly have menopause related conversations with friends, family, a colleague or with an individual accessing a service. Using the 3A’s (ASK, ASSIST, ACT) framework, participants will be able to explore the physical, emotional, and social impacts of menopause, and provide information about how to access information and local support through menopause cafes, GPs, lifestyle services, online resources, and apps.

By the end of this course participants will have:

  • Explored how to have a MECC conversation about menopause
  • Increased or refreshed their knowledge of menopause
  • Considered the impact of menopause not being recognises
  • An increased confidence to raise issues around the menopause in various settings
  • Become more aware of menopause resources.
