Female Ambulance Staff Experiences of Menopause Transition (CESSATION) publishes a qualitative study of female ambulance staff experiences of the menopause transition.
Menopause is a key workplace issue. Many women will experience symptoms through their later working life. The ambulance service constitutes an employment setting that, dependent on the roles of female staff, can impact on the severity of menopause symptoms and experiences.
This study, entitled “An in-depth qualitative interview study of female ambulance staff experiences of the menopause transition (CESSATION phase 3)”, aimed to explore female ambulance staff experiences of the menopause transition and suggest ways to improve support offerings.
CESSATION is an East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust menopause research study, aimed at identifying the impacts of menopause on female ambulance staff and identify service interventions that may support staff during the menopause transition.
CESSATION received funding from UEA Health and Social Care Partners and College of Paramedics.
