Parsippany, NJ – January 12, 2011 – The Female Patient (TFP), a peer-reviewed journal committed to educating clinicians about issues exclusive to women, is launching “Menopause Matters,” a section responding to women’s medical issues in midlife, in collaboration with The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), the leading nonprofit scientific organization dedicated to promoting a healthy life for women through an understanding of menopause. The section will be accompanied by patient handouts in both English and Spanish, and will be downloadable in print as well as digital and mobile phone formats.
The collaboration will bring original scientific and clinical content from NAMS to TFP brand, known for its robust multimedia platform, circulation reach, and long history in women’s health publishing. Publisher Margo Ullmann noted that “the collaboration provides significant benefits to both of our organizations, as we strive to educate healthcare professionals and enhance patient care.”
TFP promotes continuing professional development through clinical reviews and instructive media in a timely and unbiased manner. Office- and hospital-based OB/GYNs, primary care physicians, and nurse practitioners who specialize in women’s health issues use this practical information to enhance their day-to-day care of female patients. The TFP brand includes print editions, patient waiting room supplements, audio/video webcasts, digital editions, medical education supplements, QR coding for real-time feedback, and a new multimedia website.
NAMS has a multidisciplinary membership of 2,000 leaders in the field – including clinical and basic science experts from medicine, nursing, sociology, psychology, nutrition, anthropology, epidemiology, pharmacy, and education – which makes the Society uniquely qualified to provide information that is both accurate and unbiased. “Menopause Matters” will be covering the following topics in 2011:
■ Cognitive Symptoms & Disorders in the Midlife Female Patient
■ Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder
■ How Do Caregiving & Stress Affect Midlife Women?
