Professional Practice Gap
Hormone therapy use has declined dramatically since the release of the results of the Women's Health Initiative study in 2002. As the number of women entering menopause continues to increase, the number of providers needed to care for these women is also increasing. Internists and family medicine specialists are uniquely qualified to prescribe and manage hormone therapy as they are trained to evaluatie and integrate the factors impacting the multiple organ systems affected by menopause. Improving the competencies of these specialists in the management of menopausal symptoms is critical to address this gap.
