AMWA develops position papers based on resolutions passed by the organization. These papers serve as a valuable resource for members and staff in communicating AMWA policy on key issues and may act as a focus of our research and education efforts. An introduction summary of all of AMWA's Position Papers can be found here or the full text version of the papers are below.
AMWA Statement on the hormone therapy position statement: The American Medical Women's Association Board of Directors unanimously and enthusiastically endorses the July 9, 2012 statement of the North American Menopause Society, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the Endocrine Society, which defines the appropriate use of hormone therapy for symptomatic women, based on currently available data. We applaud them for their thoughtful and systematic evaluation of the available data, and their commitment to providing appropriate opinions to American women in this area of expertise.
