The MQ6 treatment algorithm is a decision tool that allows the healthcare provider to utilize the answers to the MQ6 as a starting point to develop a personalized menopausal treatment plan. The original algorithm has been amended and updated to reflect the most recent evidence, guidelines, and available treatment options. A discussion explaining the rationale for the decisions in the algorithm can be found by reviewing the original CFP journal article “An Efficient Tool for the Primary Care Management of Menopause“.
A printable PDF of the updated treatment algorithm can be found below, however you may choose to use the quick online interactive version of the algorithm/decision tool here:
