Inclusive Health Care for LGBTQ Patients
Nearly 3 million Texas residents (3.6 %) identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LBGTQ). Additionally, Texas has the second-highest population of transgender teens in the United States.
Most LBGTQ individuals have the same basic health needs as the general population, but many avoid or delay care, or receive inappropriate or inferior care, because of perceived or real discrimination by physicians and health care providers. In addition, LBGTQ youth are at higher risk for suicide, sexually transmitted infections, and substance use. Discrimination, stigmatization, and legal and social bias present health barriers and risks that contribute to health disparities among your LGBTQ patients.
To help your patients overcome these disparities, play this webinar to learn:
- Common terminology used in sexual and gender minority populations;
- Stages of physical and identity development in gender-diverse youth and across the lifespan, including special care needs in the trans population;
- Factors that may underlie health care disparities and barriers;
- Strategies and community resources for providing inclusive care; and
- The legal landscape and LGBTQ individuals.
Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to identify current approaches to developing an inclusive environment for patients who identify as LGBTQ.
