24th Annual Australasian Menopause Society CongressMIDLIFE AND MENOPAUSE: Perception in the Pandemic

Hilton Adelaide | South Australia | Online

On behalf of the AMS it gives me great pleasure to announce the 2021 AMS Congress will be delivered as a hybrid event with both onsite and online attendance options!.

Join us 26-28 November 2021 in Adelaide or online as we share our experiences and knowledge gained as we have all adapted in our approaches to Midlife and Menopause issues across the pandemic.

Whether you are participating in the Congress as an onsite or an online delegate, this year’s conference offers you a stimulating scientific program designed to inform while encouraging time for reflection and renewal.

Our national and international speakers will explore the latest research across a range of topics including ageing and its resistance and gender differences affecting metabolic, immune and cardiac function. We will look at breast cancer and sleep. Telehealth, conflict resolution and time management are topics relevant for all of us.

Our clinically focused and always popular Pre-Congress Menopause Essentials Update will again cover all aspects of menopause management.

We hope as many of you as possible will be able to join us in Adelaide but we are providing an online option to facilitate the participation of our interstate and international colleagues who are unable to travel to Adelaide.  All presentations, including those in the Update, will be streamed to online delegates, with presentations available to view by all attendees in the portal for 3 months following the Congress. Onsite and online delegates will be able to connect with each other via the Meeting Hub in the portal.

All sponsors and exhibitors, in addition to onsite exhibition, will also have an online exhibition presence in the portal to engage and promote their products and services to online delegates.

For those of you who are able to travel, we look forward to welcoming you to the conference venue which is adjacent to a vibrant market and restaurant precinct, with the coast a brief tram ride away.  We also hope to see you at the Congress Dinner at the Adelaide Zoo where you will have the opportunity to experience an animal encounter!

So join us, renew old acquaintances and make new connections in Adelaide or online in November 2021.

Host Organisation

The Australasian Menopause Society (AMS) is the peak body representing doctors and other health care professionals who have a special interest in women’s midlife health, the menopause and the promotion of healthy ageing. The aim of the AMS is the advancement of knowledge about the menopause. As well as holding an annual scientific Congress in Australia & New Zealand, some AMS members are involved with the Asia-Pacific and International Menopause Societies, recognizing that women living in Australia and New Zealand may have widely differing experiences of menopause.

Why Attend

The format for the 2021 Congress includes plenaries with invited speakers and proffered papers, company organised symposia, poster presentations, workshops, and several social events.

This gives all those involved with the Congress the opportunity to learn valuable knowledge, meet experts in the field and establish new networks and grow existing ones, all in an enjoyable, friendly and relaxing environment.

Delegate Profile

We expect that over 300 delegates from a wide range of backgrounds will attend the AMS Congress. The majority will be Australian and New Zealand General Practitioners who work in all aspects of women’s mid-life health. The Congress will also attract Gynaecologists and Obstetricians, Endocrinologists, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Cardiac Specialists and others. It means that delegates are interested in learning information related to cardiovascular disease, fertility, mental health, osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes and all areas of preventative medicine.
