89338 - Hormone therapy and menopause. A protracted misunderstanding explained. Feb 2017.

  • : Online

Online learning module with an original peer-reviewed update on when to use menopausal hormone therapy (MHT, previously called HRT hormone replacement therapy).

Relevance to General Practice

- Menopausal symptoms are common during the menopause and women will seek advice from their GP. 
- Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) is the most effective option for managing menopausal symptoms and, when used in appropriate women, has minimal side effects. 
- Following the release of publicised risks on the Women's Health Initiative (WHI), the management rate of menopause decreased significantly in 2003–2004. 
- Many publications, including several authored by WHI investigators, and data published in 2013 from long-term follow up of WHI trial participants have helped to clarify the situation. 

Learning outcomes
  • Identify patients who may benefit from menopausal hormone therapy (MHT)
  • Discuss the risks and benefits of MHT with patients
  • List the factors that affect the duration of MHT
  • Identify credible sources of information about MHT
