- When do the menopausal symptoms appear, how long do they persist and with what frequency and severity, and what is known about the factors that influence them?
- What is the evidence for the benefits and harms of commonly used interventions for relief of menopause-related symptoms?
- What are the important considerations in managing menopause-related symptoms in women with clinical characteristics or circumstances that may complicate decisionmaking?
- What are the future research directions for treatment of menopause-related symptoms and conditions?
