We need your help to develop a bone health fact sheet for women with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI) / Early Menopause (EM)!

A bone health fact sheet aims to inform women with POI/EM about the risk of osteoporosis and what women can do to protect their bones. Earlier in the year we asked women with POI/EM about what they would like to include in a bone health fact sheet. Using this information, we have created a draft bone health fact sheet. The aim of this study is to explore the views of women with POI/EM to further develop and refine the bone health fact sheet. You may be eligible for this study if you are diagnosed with POI (menopause before 40 years) or EM (menopause before 45 years) and are aged 20 years or more. This research involves attending a focus group or an individual interview at Monash Medical Centre in Clayton to share your views on a bone health fact sheet for POI/EM. The group will consist of approx. 4-6 women who have been diagnosed with POI/EM. The session will take approx. 60 minutes.

This research involves attending a focus group or an individual interview at Monash Medical Centre in Clayton to share your views on a draft QPL for EM. The group will consist of approx. 4-6 women who have been diagnosed with EM. The session will take approx. 60 minutes. You will receive a $30 gift voucher to thank-you for participating.
