Following the great reception of the MECC (Making Every Contact Count) for Menopause programme, the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) and Bluesci Support have developed this eLearning module.

The module aims to function as an introduction to the menopause for anyone, regardless of their own menopausal status and does not require any previous field knowledge. The module includes several interactive tasks, self-reflective exercises and upon completion, learners get access to an additional Menopause resource guide.
