With women making up a large percentage of staff across general practice Menopause in the Workplace is a topic that cannot be ignored, and this programme will assist you in gaining an understanding of what menopause is, why it has an impact on organisations and staff and the role of the manager.
With women making up 77% of the NHS workforce and an increasing number of women staying in work beyond the age of 50, many will experience symptoms that affect their wellbeing and working lives. It has been reported that 25% of working menopausal women have considered leaving their careers due to the impact of symptoms and a lack of understanding and support within the workplace.
By increasing awareness, developing positive cultural engagement, and understanding the hazards of doing nothing, organisations in general practice will be able to reduce their risk, protect their reputation, and support all staff affected by the menopause, whether directly or indirectly.
Delegates will explore the changing face of the workplace, key facts, and symptoms of the menopause, understand the role of the manager and how best to support colleagues and the organisation to maintain wellbeing and productivity.
The workshop will be delivered as a virtual session with practical guidance to enable participants to introduce the conversation about menopause into their own practice.
