Description

Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) people in the United States face numerous known health disparities, in addition to discrimination, harassment, and lack of access to quality healthcare.

One contributing factor to these health disparities may be the community’s tenuous relationship to healthcare institutions. One third of transgender people reported a negative health care experience related to their gender identity in the past year; 24% said they had to educate their provider to receive appropriate care; and 23% said they had delayed or avoided care because of a fear of mistreatment by their provider, with rates substantially higher for transgender people of color (James et al., 2016). Though increasing attention is being paid to LGBT health, educational efforts are limited and typically aggregate (not trans specific) (Dubin et al., 2018). This is of particular concern because many TGD people have unique healthcare needs such as specialized psychotherapy, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), gender affirming surgical procedures, and different preventative care requirements than cisgender people.

The goal of the Gender-Affirming Healthcare Series is to increase participant's knowledge and awareness to provide culturally competent care for TGD patients across the lifespan. The series provides programming on better understanding diverse gender identities, processes of gender affirmation, specific medical and mental health needs, and best practices in competent gender-affirming care. Each session will include breakout discussions to apply learning to the educational needs of healthcare professionals at any level of experience in serving TGD patients.
