Expanding Medical Care for Trans Patients
xpanding the Breadth of Services for Transgender and Non-Binary Patients
As health care providers across specialties are beginning to see more gender diverse patients, there is an increasing need for affirming, competent, and welcoming holistic care. Unfortunately, for transgender and non-binary patients, this type of healthcare can be very difficult to find. According to the 2015 National Transgender Survey, participants expressed that they experienced many barriers to accessing healthcare including lack of adequate insurance coverage, mistreatment by health providers, and health providers’ discomfort or inexperience with treating transgender people.¹ While it’s important that all staff – from front desk and intake staff, MAs, nurses, clinicians, lab techs, etc. be trained in the basics of respecting and understanding transgender and non-binary identities, patients need and deserve more.
In this webinar, we will be elaborating on what was covered in the “Basics of Trans Affirming Care” and dive deeper into the many ways that transgender and non-binary patients can be affirmed beyond checking boxes on a “best practice” list. We will cover how to create inclusive and expansive language for services, how to honor patient privacy and find respectful ways to discuss bodies, and how to build a better understanding of what constitutes gender affirming care – as well as the role you can play in supporting transgender and non-binary patients through all stages of care.
