Judges Comments
"This book is structured well into 4 sections. Of particular merit: the succinct flow chart for the management of osteoporosis; box 51 of NICE referral recommendations for breast cancer is very useful as a quick reference; and the indications for endocrine investigations which are really practical and packed with pearls of wisdom. It is clearly written and precise"

Published on behalf of the British Menopause Society, the fourth edition of this handbook is designed to be a practical reference guide for those working in primary care and other health professionals who encounter menopausal women in their daily practice. The book covers the physiology of the Menopause, the symptoms experienced and then goes on to discuss the benefits and risks of various treatment modalities. There are particular guidelines on using non-Oestrogen based therapies, as well as a full discussion of the merits and problems of HRT.

The 4th Edition of Management of the Menopause: The handbook is packed full of up to date information essential for all busy health professionals providing healthcare to post, peri and premenopausal women. This will be an essential resource for all those working with women who are going through the Menopause.

Review quote

This updated handbook on menopause management should be required reading for all nurses working in the field of menopause. Its practical nature makes it easy to read and relevant to practice, especially for those in primary care.
Nursing Standard

This book on menopause is to be recommended for its authority, brevity and readability...Cultural differences in attitudes to menopause are covered...there is something for everyone. Designed as a handbook for those working in primary care and other health professionals, it includes many of the latest references for the researcher, and would provide an excellent background resource for the health writer.
Medical Journalists Association News

This publication provides a broad overview of menopause, contains some very basic information and includes alternative medicinal approaches that patients are likely to report using or are considering using.
Maturitas

The British Menopause Society's handbook is compact, informative and non-biased, and I wish I had come across it several years ago. It successfully guides the reader through the basic science of the menopause, towards treatment goals and strategies to manage the symptoms that women find distressing at this time of life...It is well written, easy to read and extensively referenced, by the editors. This is an authoritative guide, which serves equally well as a core text on the subject, or as a useful resource to dip into. As such, it should appeal to registrars completing their training, and to more experienced GPs who have been through the menopause many times already.
Update

This book is a useful resource that would be an astute personal investment for primary care nurses, in particular those working in general practice or in the arena of women's healthcare
