Hormones - From Contraception to Menopause (Two Parter)

May 24, 2023 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Virtual Webinar – Online Delivery, All Cities BC

Pharmacists have played an important role in primary contraception (CHC), which combines estrogen and progesterone to prevent ovulation. Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) describes the symptoms and signs resulting from estrogen deficiency on the female genitourinary tract. Symptoms relating to GSM are highly prevalent and affects anywhere from 27% to 84% of post-menopausal women.

In Part 1, we will discuss the current options of Combined Hormonal Contraception available in Canada. In Part 2, we will explore Menopausal Hormone Therapy. By the end of the webinar, pharmacists will be better able to provide valuable insights and support to their patients on these important topics. Register now to secure your spot!
