Menopause is a routine, non-pathologic condition involving the
permanent cessation of menses for at least 12 months and occurs in
all menstruating females due to non-pathologic estrogen deficiency.
In the United States, approximately 1.3 million women become
menopausal each year. It typically begins between the ages of 51 and
52, although some women experience premature menopause before the
age of 40, due to permanent ovarian failure that may be associated
with sex chromosome abnormalities. Menopause symptoms vary, but 75%
of women experience vasomotor symptoms (VMS). This activity will
look at the management of menopause and stresses the role of a
multidisciplinary team approach to care for patients. Even though
menopause is a physiological condition and not a disease, it has
significant morbidity. Attendees will also be educated on the
physiology of menopause and discuss ways on how to improve outcomes
for patients who are not able to tolerate the symptoms. With new
options coming out soon, it is important to continue the
conversation and educate on the current options available as well as
the options that will be available soon.
Upon completion of this
activity, participants will be able to:
Assess the current guideline
recommendations for the diagnosis and management of menopause,
including a look at the pathophysiology
Examine the current treatment
options available for menopause, including hormone therapy and
Analyze the latest clinical trial
data on investigational agents for vasomotor symptoms (VMS) that
are nearing approval
Compare and contrast the risks and
benefits of current treatments for VMS to address barriers to
optimal medical management
Discuss multidisciplinary team
strategies for improving coordination and communication to
advance the management of menopause and improve patient outcomes
Evaluate the managed care
considerations of new and emerging therapy options by exploring
where these agents may fit into current menopause management
