Language is constantly evolving. As society adapts to these linguistic changes, it is vital that health care providers adapt their practices to recognize and affirm the LBGTQ+ community. In this foundational module, learners will acquire skills and best practices to communicate in ways that are affirming to transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) patients to mitigate the traumatic effects of misgendering patients. Topics covered are dismantling binary thinking, gender and gender identity, trauma informed care, gender neutral language, and using appropriate pronouns to improve provider patient communication.
Howard Brown exists to eliminate the disparities in healthcare experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people through research, education and the provision of services that promote health and wellness.
