A new toolkit for the diagnosis and treatment of menopause has been developed with the help of research out of Monash University.
Lead researcher Professor Susan Davis and her team from the School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine created the toolkit, which draws on previous menopause research, diagnostic algorithms and clinical findings to provide GPs and patients with the best options for treatment and symptom management.
Because the toolkit addresses broad, general guidelines for treatment, it can be used around the globe for any woman experiencing the effects of menopause, which normally occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, and which can have often-unpredictable side effects.
The clear, accessible and evidence based approach is the first of its kind for the treatment of menopause, and has the potential to help all women overcome the confusion and uncertainty which can arise as a result of its onset.
Important developments such as this global initiative depend on continuing support of Australian university innovation.
