Updated NICE draft guideline for consultation highlights CBT for menopause symptoms should be an available option for patients.


The following news was published on the British Menopause Society Website Yesterday.


“The NICE guideline: Menopause – Diagnosis and Management published in 2015 was a significant turning point in both raising awareness of the importance of menopause and in providing direction in management. However, updating is timely and very much welcomed.

It is well recognised that menopause care should be individualised as is emphasised, and so it is essential that women are aware of all treatment options. Greater emphasis on the importance and effectiveness of CBT is well placed, along with clear balancing of benefits and risks of HRT.

Need for further research in certain areas has been highlighted and it is very much hoped that investment can be prioritised in this important area of women’s health”.

This is really good news as working also in the NHS, I find it is difficult to access CBT specifically for Menopause Symptoms. That’s why I trained to deliver this therapy.
