About the project

Early menopause (EM) affects up to 10% of women under 45 years. Women with EM have reported difficulty communicating with clinicians during clinical consultations and have unmet information needs and limited access to information about osteoporosis.

An EM website was developed with input from women with EM and health professionals. This project evaluated whether the new EM website was useful and more helpful than what is currently available.
