FIRST NICE GUIDELINES FOR MENOPAUSE
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has released its first ever guideline for the diagnosis and management of menopause. The guideline makes several recommendations, including the adoption of individualised care, improved diagnosis and better information and advice for women.
The guidelines are based on the best available research evidence and underline the importance of high-quality research into the menopause. As with many other underfunded areas of women’s health, Wellbeing of Women is one of the few sources of funding for menopause research and the Guideline Development Group was chaired by Professor Mary Ann Lumsden, one of the charity’s Trustees, who received funding for an innovative project which could lead to new treatments for hot flushes.
