Join us for a CEU (1.5) event! Dimensions of Gender in Accessing Health Care with Sean Baker, LMFT.
Transgender and Gender Diverse individuals face several barriers to accessing health care that is sensitive to their needs. As a result, many Transgender and Gender Diverse patients either do not seek medical care or under-report the issues that are impacting their mental and physical well-being. Health care practitioners can be better equipped to discern the needs of these patients and then be better able to provide quality care. During this presentation, health care professionals will learn about the importance of gender identity in the context of health care best practices. Practitioners will learn about being culturally sensitive providers to transgender and gender expansive patients and how to create safe and welcoming climates in their clinical environment.
