June is Pride Month and the theme allows us to reflect on the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community in the workforce and society.
This observance month also allows us to highlight the health care challenges and barriers LGBTQ+ individuals experience within the health care system to receive culturally and clinically competent care.
Presenters will share how to recognize the health needs and disparities experienced by LGBTQ+ Veterans.
They also will discuss why and how to ask patients about their birth sex, gender identity and sexual orientation. They’ll share strategies for creating a more welcoming practice for LGBTQ+ Veteran patients that you can incorporate into your treatment approach.
