Focusing on LGBTQ Health Considerations
The LGBTQ Health Care Conference is a two-day event designed for nurses, physicians, physician assistants, psychologists, speech pathologists, social workers, students, trainees, community members and other allied health providers who seek to understand the unique health considerations and barriers to health care in the LGBTQ population.
Attendees will learn how to provide respectful, patient-centered, culturally competent health care by developing skills to establish rapport, recognize barriers to medical care, offer LGBTQ patients competent primary care and/or referrals to such care, and identify the unique health risks in the LGBTQ population.
Topics include safe spaces; polyamory; family planning; case presentations; sexual consent, assault and domestic violence; surgery; gender diverse youth; emergency care; spiritual care; and more.
Registration is open to everyone. Learners (students, residents and fellows) can attend for free. Scholarships are available. The conference will be virtual this year due to COVID-19 precautions. CME, ACPE and ANCC credits are available. Find out more information about the conference and how to register.
