CHIMA | 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting – Gender Diversity: Supporting the LGBTQ+ Population

Recognizing the need to better support their patients who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or gender non-conforming, healthcare facilities are training their physicians in gender-affirming treatment, and training patient facing staff in appropriate and respectful language to use when interacting with LGBTQ+ patients and families. Join us for a presentation on how one pediatric facility addressed this challenge, learn of their successes for families and patients and their plans for future operational enhancements and community outreach.
