The UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has issued a [b]draft[/b] guideline on the diagnosis and management of menopause for consultation (closes 13 July 2015). The guideline concentrates on the clinical management of menopause-related symptoms and considers both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical treatments. The IMS is proud to have two of its members serving as pivotal persons in the NICE committee – Mary Ann Lumsden and Nick Panay. I reviewed the short version of the guideline, but the full, detailed paper is available for the public as well.
