Event Description

On January 20, 2004, NCCAM convened a trans-NIH workshop on assessing measurements of hot flashes with a group of scientists, broadly ranging in disciplines. The objectives of this workshop were to assess:

  • our understanding of the physiological and endocrine parameters associated with hot flashes
  • the self-reported experience of hot flashes
  • the quality of existing subjective and objective measures of hot flashes
  • and the barriers and opportunities to improve these measures.
