There is a distinct health disparity within the LGBTQ population. Research that compares LGBTQ people to heterosexuals shows LGBT adults are less likely to seek health care services, more likely to suffer severe psychological distress, and have more chronic conditions, like asthma, heart attack, and depression. More concerning is that nearly two thirds of transgender people consider suicide at some point in their lives. This course covers the importance of understanding the LGBTQ community while learning proper phrases and pronouns that promote a more inclusive environment. Communication tips will be provided, health disparities will be examined, and case-scenarios will be reviewed and discussed.
