This activity is intended for OB/GYN’s, endocrinologists and internists who treat menopausal women.   
In three brief video segments and interactive learning moments, expert faculty provide practical guidance for managing and treating menopausal vasomotor symptoms. Discussion covers gaps in care, guideline recommendations, a novel mechanism for controlling vasomotor symptoms, and strategies to communicate with patients. Hear first-hand testimonials from patients to learn more about how vasomotor symptoms impact their quality of life. 
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Demonstrate increased knowledge and awareness about the long-term vasomotor symptoms that women experience in menopause and the potential to have a negative influence on quality of life.
  • Explain how the neurokinin (NK) receptor pathway is believed to be involved in the etiology of hot flashes in menopausal women.
  • Describe resources available for educating patients about therapies for menopause and strategies for encouraging women to make informed decisions about managing the vasomotor symptoms of menopause.
