This two-hour course will educate healthcare providers and clinicians on culturally competent care for gender minorities (transgender and gender non-binary) and sexual minorities (lesbians, gays, and bisexuals). The course will review terminology and systems-based approaches that will increase providers' knowledge of medical, sexual, and transition history from gender and sexual minorities in a culturally competent manner. Additionally, the program will navigate the adverse outcomes associated with being a gender or sexual minority and the effects of minority stress theory and recommendations for providers to circumvent these outcomes. Primary care issues pertinent to this population will also be discussed, including screening for HIV and STDs, provision of HIV pre or post-exposure prophylaxis, and reproductive counseling. Finally, an educational overview will be provided of the possible hormonal and surgical options available to patients seeking gender affirmation therapy.
