Study Day for Occupational Health Nurses
Friday 20th May 2022
via zoom, 930-4pm
Menopause and work. What does one have to do with the other?
Sometimes nothing. And it would be great if that was always the case.
But did you know?
8 out of 10 women experiencing menopause in the UK will be working.
Women aged over 50 are the fastest growing demographic in the UK workplace.
During perimenopause, 75% get symptoms, 25% describe them as 'moderate' or severe'
60% say symptoms have negative effect at work (CIPD)
Half of individuals don't seek medical help (Faculty of Occupational Medicine)
Workplace support can make a huge difference to wellbeing and productivity at this time
Come and learn about how menopause affects the workplace, how staff can be well supported and how occupational health nurses can be key in changing the workplace experience of menopause.
