The Australasian Menopause Society (AMS) objectives include:
- disseminating evidence-based information on menopause and women’s midlife health to health professionals and the public
- educating doctors and other healthcare professionals in clinical care and understanding of midlife women’s health in our community
- encouraging the application of evidence-based information and knowledge in midlife women’s health and healthy ageing, as clinical best practice; and
- translating research into evidence-based clinical practice excellence and advocacy.
The AMS seeks to bring accurate, evidence-based information to health care workers and the wider community about premature menopause, peri-menopause, MHT/HRT and alternatives, osteoporosis and how to locate a doctor interested in women's health.
The transition through menopause may raise many individual medical questions. While it's not possible ethically for AMS to answer these questions, the Society provides Health Information which may be freely accessed to help women and their health professionals better understand the transition through this stage of life.
