Introductory courses for anyone in a professional healthcare setting, including nurses, doctors, counsellors, social workers and specialists.
Includes the following courses...
- Watch Your Language: Learning the Language of Gender: Words can convey our respect - or expose our ignorance. Explore how to avoid common mistakes in working with your gender diverse clientele.
- Creating a Trans-Friendly Medical Clinic or Business: Make your medical practice or business more transgender-friendly and inclusive with simple actions such as identifying pronouns, using proper forms, and avoiding mistakes that may alienate or offend your clients.
- Learning the Trans-Affirming Patient Intake and Physical Exam: Transgender individuals are often reluctant to go to a physician. We can make the experience better for our trans clients by using trans-affirming language, pre-empting awkward exchanges before they happen, and by sharing useful information. Dr. Gromko discusses practical ways to make all visits more comfortable and more productive.
You'll also get access to our Healthcare Professionals Community Forum, a private "non-Facebook" site for healthcare professionals learning and working with the trans community.
