Menopause, the end of menstruation and fertility, is a natural biological process, not a medical condition. Even so, the physical and emotional symptoms of menopause can disrupt a women's life and require treatment if severe.

Very often, women arrive at their menopause years without knowing anything of what they might expect, or when or how the process starts and how long it may last. Many women have not been informed about this stage of life, in the US it may often be the case that Physicians, older female family members or members of a women's social group have provided no insight or information. With confusion over the risks of oestrogen therapy, the proliferation of alternative therapies, concerns about Osteoporosis and Heart Disease and questions about sexual health, the need for clear useful information is endless.

What Nurses Know...Menopause sheds new light on this natural biological process and its symptoms from a trusted source: Nurses. Simply organised and clearly written What Nurses Know...Menopause provides individuals, their families, friends and healthcare practitioners the answers they need and want.

Special features include:

  • Numerous sidebars and call out boxes with ""Nurse Notes"" and ""New Nursing Research Points to...""
  • Definitions of common terms
  • Resources, online tools and specific websites at the end of each chapter to help those going through menopause
About the series:

Nurses hold a critical role in modern health care that goes beyond their day-to-day duties. They share more information with patients than any other provider group, and are alongside patients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, offering understanding of complex health issues, holistic approaches to ailments, and advice for the patient that extends to the family.

Nurses themselves are a powerful tool in the healing process. What Nurses Know gives down-to-earth information, addresses consumers as equal partners in their care, and explains clearly what readers need and want to know to understand their condition and move forward with their lives.

Review:

Karen does a particularly good job covering hormone therapy starting with an overview of research studies including the Women s Health Initiative and current recommendations about HRT. For those who are considering HRT, and are weighing the risks vs. benefits, she provides a list of factors that you should think about and review with your physician. And for those who are thoroughly confused about what bio-identical hormones really are, you ll find a comprehensive explanation without bias, which is rare these days. - menopausetheblog.com <P><I>""Nurses are experts at translating knowledge for patients. Rouse, a registered nurse, has written this book for women experiencing this bewildering time in life through the eyes of a nurse. The easy-to-read text mixes understandable explanations with solid medical knowledge. What Nurses Know outlines the physiology of menopause, its symptoms, and includes tips and recommendations for its management.</P> <P>The symptoms reviewed range from hot flashes and night sweats to decreased libido and sleep disturbances. The book also includes an honest appraisal of the benefits and risks of hormone therapy. There are sidebars from nurses and quotes from women about their experiences.</P> <P>Overall, What Nurses Know...Menopause is an enjoyable, informative read and highly<BR>recommended.""- </I><B>Lisa Astalos Chism</B> DNP, APRN, BC, NCMP, North American Menopause Society</P> ""This title covers the gamut of topics in a simple, straightforward way from a health-care practitioner perspective. Sidebars provide additional tips from nurses, explain medical terms, or give additional information. Each chapter ends with a list of online resources, making it easy to skip around to sections that are of particular use or interest to individual readers. Quotes from women describing their experiences add a personal touch. A solid choice for general information about menopause in one volume."" - Library Journal,
