Menopause is a physiologic transition experienced by all women at midlife. Symptoms are have a variable impact of quality of life, but can be severe and disabling. Registrars manage fewer menopause-related problems than established GPs, with about 3.5% of consultations with women aged 45-64 years menopause related. Due to the changing goalposts of evidence and guidelines over the past couple of decades, managing the menopause is a topic of confusion for many GPs, registrars included. Recent Australian research has demonstrated that registrars find management of patients with menopausal symptoms challenging, especially male registrars who see fewer such patients.
