Making Every Contact Count (MECC) for Menopause training programme
Designed by the Royal Society for Public Health in collaboration with Bluesci this menopause awareness training seeks to develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to integrate relevant conversations and support.
Traditionally, menopause is viewed as a specialist medical and clinical condition and as such, most people at the frontline of running support services or initiatives within the health system, the community, and workplaces, do not routinely ask about menopause. It is not surprising that women are reluctant or feel unable to talk about menopause and its impact on their lives.
Through the Making Every Count (MECC) approach, participants will be able to challenge this culture and openly have menopause related conversations with friends, family, a colleague or with an individual accessing a service. Using the 3A’s (ASK, ASSIST, ACT) framework, participants will be able to explore the physical, emotional, and social impacts of menopause, and provide information about how to access information and local support through menopause cafes, GPs, lifestyle services, online resources and apps.
During 2.5 to 3 hours of learning participants will be able to:
- Review their knowledge of menopause
- Reflect on the relevance of menopause as part of their organisation’s work
- Discuss recognition of menopause and associated risks of missed diagnosis
- Make action plans on what they can do to progress practice within their service/organisation
At the end of the programme all participants will receive a certificate of attendance with 2 continuous professional development (CPD) points.
