Training Affirming Healthcare Provider and Educators
Time & Location
About the Event
Building a better healthcare system that expands on equitable access and utilization is a common goal across all communities. Yet, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning or Queer (LGBTQ+) persons often have distinct health needs of their own. In fact, LGBTQ+ people can face issues that reinforce societal stressors and stigmas even from within the healthcare system. To address this issue, Stanford Medicine developed the “Teaching LGBTQ+ Health” Course, a faculty development course for health professions educators.
This webinar will discuss the need for and importance of aligning prevention and care delivery with existing evidence-based, culturally sensitive standards of care for LGBTQ+ patients. The course itself is meant to improve knowledge, teaching skills, and attitudes pertaining to the provision of healthcare to LGBTQ+ patients. The presenters will highlight the production of the course, including the partnership of instructional designers at Stanford Educational Technology with physician co-authors. Features of the interactive, online platform will be demonstrated.
