About This Activity

Program Overview

There is a need to increase provider confidence and competency in treating LGBTQ patients. This presentation will help decrease disparities in care by helping providers examine any prejudices and biases they have. This internet enduring material is designed to address gaps related to the fact that many providers have concerns about treating LGBTQ patients and want to understand their own biases to ensure biases do not affect care.

Educational Objectives

After completing this internet enduring material, participants should be able to:

  • Use the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) to identify Clinical Guidelines.
  • Describe how to take a sexual history using language preferred by LGBT patients.
  • Demonstrate skill discussing sexual health issues openly with patients using non-judgmental questions about sexual practices and behaviors.
  • List strategies to create a safe and welcoming environment for LGBT/Q patients.
