Description

Studies find that cultural competency in healthcare practice with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) patients is significantly lacking across health professions’ curricula.1 LGBTQ patients are vulnerable to uninformed care as well as to biases and discrimination that, as a consequence, may result in healthcare avoidance and/or poor outcomes.2,3 Further, lack of knowledge regarding LGBTQ health contributes to practitioner discomfort and low confidence when addressing LGBTQ needs.1 The goals of this event was to raise awareness of distinctive features of LGBTQ health needs, identify biases and mitigate potential discrimination, and increase knowledge surrounding the health needs of our patients. The event presented both didactic content and interactive discussion using multimodal virtual technology to promote interprofessional collaboration among students while gaining increased understanding of culturally competent care for LGBTQ patients.
