Previous research has found that relatively few women seek advice about menopause from a health professional.
To ameliorate this, a research team from Western Sydney University are conducting a survey on Australian women’s knowledge and experience of perimenopause and menopause.
This study seeks to understand Australian women’s knowledge and experience of perimenopause and menopause. Findings from this study will be used to inform health care professionals so that they are better prepared to support the physical and mental health of perimenopausal and menopausal women. It is further anticipated that findings will enhance the self-efficacy and health seeking behaviours of women experiencing physical and psychological symptoms of perimenopause and menopause.
This study has ethics approval and is being undertaken by Professor Kath Peters, Dr Fiona McDermid, Dr Kate O’Reilly, Dr Susan McInnes (Western Sydney University), Diksha Diksha (Research intern Western Sydney University) and Joanne Perks (Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner).
