Project ID: 2018_011_TEE_01

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. The aim of this project is to find out if a new EM website is useful and more helpful than what is currently available.
