BVN has launched the Mind the Gap wellbeing initiative, a new series of lunchtime events aimed to support professionals and enrich workplace culture. The first two events focus on Menopause in the Workplace in association with the Australasian Menopause Society.

Part one was held on 13 June, with Dr Liz Rayment presenting on Menopause Awareness. The video for this session will be available shortly.

On 27 June, Dr Amie Hanlon will present on Midlife Health and Work.

The Mind the Gap series aims to shape positive change for the industry. Events are open to all to follow online – either by attending via Teams or viewing the video recordings.

Midlife health and work

On Thursday 27 June Dr Amie Hanlon will present on menopause and midlife heath at work, outlining self-management coping strategies and preventative interventions for healthy ageing. The discussion will also cover managerial skills and workplace adjustments to support those experiencing menopause.


Dr Amie Hanlon is an obstetrician and gynaecologist who has been in private practice since receiving her fellowship from RANZCOG in early 2016. Amie is the Queensland member representative Director of the Australasian Menopause Society Board. In her time as a private gynaecologist, Amie has been privileged to witness the vast improvement in quality of life that a personalised approach to the management of the perimenopause can bring, and truly enjoys guiding women through their menopausal transition as one of the clinicians at the multidisciplinary Menopause Centre in Greenslopes, Brisbane. Amie also has a special interest in paediatric and adolescent gynaecology, having undertaken a fellowship year in this field as part of her training.
