New guidance for menopause nurses

  • Comment

A new guide for nurses working in the field of menopause has been published by the RCN.

The guidance – RCN Competences: an integrated career and competence framework for nurses and health care support workers working in the field of menopause – is intended to ensure practice in this area is ‘safe, effective and accountable’. 

‘The publication has been written to help staff plan their career and identify their level of practice and development needs, while increasing the effectiveness of service provision,’ according to the college.

It highlighted that menopause nurses worked in many different settings including outpatients, ward areas and primary care, with roles that vary according to service and patient needs.

‘The evolving role of the menopause nurse is essential to the provision of expert clinical care, and for the education of both patients and health care professionals,’ the RCN added.
