Association between menopausal hormone therapy and cardiovascular events, cancer diagnosis and all-cause mortality in mid-aged Australian women.
We plan to investigate the association between menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) and important health outcomes in mid-aged Australian women. We plan to use electronic prescriptions data on medication use to obtain information on use of MHT in the 1946-51 cohort of Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH) from mid-2002 onwards. Mortality outcomes will be obtained from the National Death Index; cardiovascular events from hospital admitted patient’s databases; and cancer diagnoses from state-wide cancer registries. Statistical analyses will be used to investigate the association between MHT and the outcomes from 2003 onwards with separate effects estimated for women with hysterectomy.
