I would like to see the implementation of a national awareness program around the menopause and the peri menopause so that women can understand better the implication of the symptoms on their health and well-being. Coupled with some form professional development training for GPS so they can assist women better in this area. My experience showed me that GP knowledge in this area is not at a level which ensures that NZ women receive the best care they can.
Why the contribution is important
I suffered for years with the symptoms of perimenapause and despite numerous trips to my GP, I got little assistance and actually at one point nearly ended my own life because of it. If it wasn't for my own research after hitting rock bottom I might not be here today.
