Sievert, Lynnette Leidy BSN, PhD

Abstract

Although many clinicians are aware of cross-cultural variation in the frequency of hot flash reports at midlife, they may underestimate the extent to which the meaning of menopause, as well as attitudes toward treatment, varies across populations. Likewise, variations in symptom frequency may influence help-seeking behavior. This Practice Pearl offers guidance regarding the issues pertinent to the midlife care of patients from diverse cultures and ethnicities.
