Abstract

In order for nursing staff to provide support and advice to women it is important that they understand the changes that women face at the time of their menopause and the issues related to improving health after menopause. This guidance aims to help nurses gain awareness of all the issues facing women by reviewing what happens to the body during menopause and in the post-menopausal stage, examining the impact of these changes on women, and outlining the options for health after menopause.
