E-Learning Equipping Women with Skills to Master the Menopause

Simply Hormones, a pioneering women’s advice and support service founded by Kathryn Colas, is launching a new e-learning course, entitled How to Survive Menopause without Losing your Mind (for women only). Presented with video and audio modules and transcripts.

Launching on 8 March, the new course is perfectly placed to reflect the sentiments of this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March, whose theme is #BalanceforBetter.  The theme focuses on the principles of building a gender-balanced world where everyone has a part to play, all the time, everywhere. It’s a belief that is shared by Simply Hormones through all of its ground-breaking work.

Every woman goes through Menopause, and many experience debilitating symptoms, while each woman has a unique physical and emotional response to it. All women need to access the correct information for them, to enable them to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.

In a hectic, digital, time-poor world, e-learning offers many benefits. It allows students to access relevant and personalised content on the go, in their own space and at their own pace. Course participants can view content unlimited times, making it easy to revise or embed a higher level of understanding.  It’s also great for the environment, being paper-free. It’s an effective way to learn for everybody.

How to Survive Menopause without Losing your Mind comprises six modules:

1: Welcome and Introduction | 2: What is Menopause? | 3: What are the Symptoms?|4: Dealing with Menopause at Work and at Home |5: Taking control of your Physical Health |6: Mental Health and Action Planning.

The course is available directly through the Simply Hormones Website: https://simplyhormones.com. Users will have their own log in details and will be able to track their own progress. On successful completion a CPD certificate will be issued. The course will also be available for bulk purchase for organisations and groups, when a ‘course commissioner’ will be appointed to manage users and track progress.

Founder of Simply Hormones, Kathryn Colas, has become a sought-after media commentator and public speaker. Kathryn is recognised for her work with NGOs, public and private sector organisations in improving understanding of menopausal symptoms; equipping women with better information while influencing policy and practices in the workplace. Kathryn became the first and only lay person to be appointed to the medical advisory committee of the British Menopause Society.

About the theme for IWD Kathryn says, “#BalanceforBetter fits well with our own ethos. Work life balance is difficult enough for women under any circumstances but by understanding menopause symptoms in a different way, how they apply to an individual and what they can do about it, will make a huge difference to their quality of life and give insight into the choices available as they progress through life. Menopause is not the end; it is the beginning of a whole new phase in life that offers so many opportunities.”

Two further e-learning courses are planned to launch later this year, and interested parties can register their interest on the website:

  • A Perfect Storm – Menopause Awareness for Managers – Audio modules with transcripts
  • A Perfect Storm – Menopause Awareness for HR and OH Professionals – Video and Audio modules, with transcripts
