‘Not just hot flushes’: Call for action over menopause

Erin Morton, an associate professor, has set up a registry called VITAL to gather information on Australians' experiences of perimenopause and menopause. A Medical Journal of Australia article revealed that 85% of Australian women with significant symptoms go undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, untreated, or mistreated. The "peripausers," a group of Australian women, have sent a petition with 10,000 signatures to federal parliament, demanding more education for GPs on perimenopause and menopause. The federal government has allocated $1.1 million for the development of MenoPROMPT, a practitioner tool to improve the care of women at and after menopause.
