Join The Fenway Institute for a CME webinar about improving your LGBTQIA+ patient interactions
Join a live webinar, “LGBTQIA+ Care: Delivering Trust and Belonging with Every Interaction,” presented by the National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center at The Fenway Institute.
The Education Center provides educational programs, resources, and consultation to health care organizations with the goal of optimizing quality, cost-effective health care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and all sexual and gender minority (LGBTQIA+) people.
One in four LGBTQIA+ people avoid care because they have felt disrespected or discriminated against within a healthcare setting1. Additionally, only 52% of medical professionals would rate their knowledge and education about clinical needs of LGBTQIA+ patients as good/very good2. Learn how to improve your interactions with LGBTQIA+ patients in this informative webinar.
The webinar will cover:
- Concepts, terminology, and lessons in building a greater understanding of the barriers this community faces
- Health disparities and stigma faced by LGBTQIA+ patients and their specific health care needs
- How to apply affirming and put into action effective communications to every LGBTQIA+ patient visit
Space is limited. Register today to secure your spot.
