Start the activity on Guidelines Learning

This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on managing vaginal dryness and genitourinary syndrome of the menopause in primary care—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.

The questions, written by Dr Louise Newson, relate to her expert article, Practical implementation tips: vaginal dryness and GSM, which explores 10 top tips on managing patients experiencing vaginal dryness or genitourinary syndrome of the menopause (GSM).

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • identify the symptoms of GSM and potential causes
  • reassure patients who experience vaginal dryness that there are effective treatments
  • know when it is appropriate to treat with topical oestrogen
  • advise on the use of vaginal lubricants and moisturisers appropriately.
