Physicians Consistent In Prescribing Hormone Therapy, Says Study
    [10/28/99; Doctor's Guide]

TORONTO, ON -- October 28, 1999 -- The majority of doctors in
Ontario seem to agree on the risks and benefits of hormone replacement
therapy (HRT) for women and are consistent in their reasons for
prescribing it, says a recent University of Toronto study. 

There is some controversy in the medical community about the safety
and effectiveness of HRT and a lack of explicit guidelines regarding
its use. "Until now, we didn't know how physicians practised
in a climate of uncertainty with few clear recommendations regarding
HRT, but this study indicates they have similar motivations and
approaches in prescribing, based on the available medical literature,"
says study co-author Dr. Marsha Cohen of the department of health
administration and the Centre for Research in Women's Health.
