AbstractThe growing presence of female veterans within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system highlights the need to assess the quality of and access to gender-specific care for menopause. We assessed the use of hormone therapy (HT) among female veterans before and after the release of the Women's Health Initiative clinical trial results and evaluated whether the structure of women's health care services within the VA system affects the use of HT.
