I was really impressed with this. The smaller modules give flexibility in how much you do in one sitting and regular knowledge tests consolidate learning.

I particularly liked the sections on which hormones cause which side effects and the detailed information on assessing breast cancer risk and comparing it to the other relative risks eg weight and alcohol.

I would recommend it to my colleagues, particularly those who feel less confident in HRT consultations.
