Event Information

Description:

Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) patients face challenges accessing high-quality, culturally sensitive, and personalized healthcare. TGD patients report avoiding medical care and being refused care and discriminated against, and subjected to unfair and inequitable policies. Some TGD patients  report being physically assaulted in medical settings.

Entering into this world of acronyms, umbrella terms, and a wide and diverse marginalized population is daunting. Even with understanding terminology and the challenges that TGD patients have in finding culturally appropriate healthcare, it can be difficult to translate this knowledge into everyday practices. PAs may ask themselves, "How do I avoid saying the wrong thing?" This presentation will explain TGD-specific terminology, concepts, practice recommendations, unique health challenges, and statistics for the practicing PA seeking to better serve this diverse community.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Recall terminology and acronyms specific to the LGBTQIA+ community with a focus on transgender and gender diverse (TGD) patient subpopulation
⦁ Describe difficulties TGD patients face within healthcare
⦁ Analyze strategies to provide inclusive and affirming care including reviewing personal scripts and  previous patient interactions as well as utilizing forms, electronic medical records, and practice or hospital policies and procedures
