Learning Objective
1. Define and apply essential LGBTQ terms
1 Credit

Using culturally appropriate terminology is essential for physicians to provide gender affirming and culturally safe care to their LGBTQ+ patients. Physicians are responsible to lead their teams in creating welcoming spaces for their LGBTQ+ patients and families. Creating environments that are welcoming to one historically excluded group conveys safety to all and facilitates sensitive and effective communication. Utilizing terminology that accurately reflects the people you serve creates an environment of accountability and respect. This module delivers universally understood language to provide a solid foundation for best practices in LGBTQ+ health in any clinical setting.
