What does the app do?
This app is aimed at healthcare providers and patients as a shared decision-making tool. Users have to select whether they are a healthcare provider or a patient and then follow a series of questions. The questions in both sections ask about age, symptoms and behavioural or lifestyle modifications. To assist with the decision about using hormone replacement therapy, the app estimates your cardiovascular risk and then provides suggestions on drug treatment. Many of the drugs are not available in New Zealand. The app structure is very similar to the North American Menopause Society website and the app links to many reading resources on the website.
✔ Links to the North American Menopause Society information sheets (pdf format) which are quite good.
✘ In the patient version, the app uses a lot of medical jargon and medical acronyms without any explanation, eg, it talks about 'CVD risk', 'CE with a 3rd generation selective estrogen receptor modulator', and 'reduced libido through SHBG effect', but doesn’t explain what these mean.
