Transforming Healthcare to Be Inclusive of LGBTQ Patients

April 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Caring for specific populations– and insuring that they are receiving equitable, high-quality care– can be daunting in today’s fast-paced environment. Despite the challenges, the effort to eliminate population-based health disparities is critical. Transforming Healthcare to Be Inclusive of LGBTQ Patients will help practitioners have a better understanding of the needs of LGBTQ patients. This conference will review basic principles of practice transformation, LGBTQ-specific health disparities, and steps to take to ensure that all receive access to high-quality, equitable care. Issues affecting both organizational structures, systems, and interpersonal communications will be described, including involvement of both leadership and staff. We will look at how to collect data to learn patient needs, and describe examples of how to communicate affirmatively with patients regarding issues of their care. We will provide examples of specific systems and clinical efforts to provide inclusive care, and how to both learn from the community and incorporate changes in the care environment. We hope you’ll join us at this timely program.
