Duration1 Year
Project Summary

The Foundational Concepts for LGTBQ2S+ Health is an online open learning resource that will educate healthcare professionals on the basics of competent care delivery to transgender, gender diverse, lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, intersex, and two-spirit patients (LGTBQ2S+ patients), with a focus on the BC health system and resources. Topics covered will include: health inequity in LGTBQ2S+ populations, sexuality-and-gender-inclusive terminology, historical and current barriers to care, and the limits of and areas of current research in LGTBQ2S+ populations. The resource will consist of online interactive modules that answer common questions about working with LGTBQ2S+ people and develop student skills based on the Association of American Medical College’s (AAMC’s) recommended professional competencies for improving LGTBQ2S+ health, which have been adopted by educators across a variety of health professions, and will feature LGTBQ2S+ voices on healthcare in the form of video interviews designed specifically for the modules.
