THE LONGER VERSION:
Title: Menopausal Women’s Perspectives on Physical Activity: A Qualitative Study

Researcher: Temi Ojo, supervised by Dr. Laura McGowan and Dr. Mei Yee Tang from Newcastle University

Purpose: The study aims to explore how physical activity impacts women experiencing menopause, addressing its potential to alleviate associated symptoms and improve overall well-being. It seeks to inform tailored intervention programs for this demographic, contributing to women's health promotion.

Eligibility: Women aged 45 to 65 who self-identify as menopausal are invited to participate, with exceptions for those who have undergone surgically induced menopause.

Participation: Participants will engage in a 30 to 60-minute interview via Teams or face-to-face at Newcastle University. The interview will delve into their perceptions and experiences with physical activity before and during menopause. Audio recordings will be transcribed for analysis.

Benefits: Participation may foster self-awareness, insight, and interview experience. Additionally, it offers a platform to share views and experiences, potentially shaping healthcare support for menopausal women. Participants will receive a £20 Amazon voucher as a token of appreciation.

Disadvantages/Risks: While minimal risks are anticipated, sensitive topics may arise during the interview. Participants can request breaks or terminate the interview if needed, with support services available for post-interview distress.

Data Handling: Confidentiality is paramount, with personal information securely stored and accessible only to the research team. Anonymized data may be used for publications, reports, and educational purposes, and will be made publicly available on the Open Science Framework. Participants can opt-out of data sharing.

Ethical Approval: The study has received approval from Newcastle University's Faculty of Medical Sciences Research Ethics Committee.
