There are approximately 55 million women of menopausal age in the US. In fact, about 6,000 women reach menopausal age every day. For many, the spectrum of physical changes and their associated impacts on daily life aren't always anticipated or well understood. Clinicians of all levels have unique opportunities to provide guidance and treatment options for patients experiencing more severe effects of menopause; however, they don't always know what to ask, or how to ask it. To address this knowledge gap, host Mimi Secor welcomes Barbara Dehn, popularly known as Nurse Barb, a practicing Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, award winning author, and a nationally recognized health expert, to discuss clinical approaches to helping patients through the more difficult symptoms of menopause.
