As health care providers across specialties are beginning to see more gender diverse patients, there is an increasing need for affirming, competent, and welcoming holistic care. Unfortunately, for transgender and non-binary patients, this type of healthcare can be very difficult to find. According to the 2015 National Transgender Survey, participants expressed that they experienced many barriers to accessing healthcare including lack of adequate insurance coverage, mistreatment by health providers, and health providers’ discomfort or inexperience with treating transgender people.


In this two part series, come learn the skills to make sure that your offices, providers, and staff are creating a safe, unbiased place where transgender and non-binary people can access affirming care.


During part 1 we will briefly review critical language, view trauma informed care through the lens of transgender and non-binary individuals, and focus on the best practices to removing barriers throughout the care process–from making the appointment to follow-up care.


During part 2 we will dive deeper into how to degender your services, create care plans that are specialized for your patient’s needs, and differentiate between different medical, legal, and social supports for transgender and non-binary patients.


These two sessions are best suited for individuals who have a baseline of understanding of core transgender and non-binary terminology and identities. If you are looking to learn those foundational skills, please first register for the Foundations of Knowledge and Action: Trans 101


Participants will be able to:

  • Identify 2 components of trauma informed care
  • Identify 4 barriers that Transgender and Non-Binary people commonly face while accessing medical care
  • Recognize 2 strategies for creating more TNB affirming practices in their clinic/office
