Menopause awareness training to support the NHS workforce

Posted on: March 8th, 2023 by Nicola Kipling No Comments

The NHS workforce is over 1.3 million strong, and 76.5% of the workforce (over 1 million) are women. Women between the ages of 45 and 54 who are likely to be going through the menopause transition make up 1 in 5 of the entire NHS workforce, over 260,000 women.

The Menopause Awareness elearning programme has been developed with NHS England to help colleagues provide a supportive working environment that champions the wellbeing of women and others affected by the menopause transition, so they thrive in the workplace.

This elearning is designed for all colleagues in the workforce. Whether you are a person transitioning through the menopause, or if you are looking for information to help you support a colleague.

The Menopause Awareness elearning session will give learners:

  • an overview of the menopause
  • the common symptoms associated with the menopause
  • scenarios which will help our people better understand the ways in which they can help support themselves and each other
