In early November, Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC) led a free webinar series to help healthcare staff incorporate cultural responsiveness when working with LGBTQ communities. The three-part series is novel for its comprehensive “virtual” approach, with live interactive panel presentations on practical strategies for more inclusive care.
The webinars — “Culturally Responsive Health Care for LGBTQ Communities,” “Collecting Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Data (SO/GI),” and “Talking About Sexual Health” — are now available for viewing following a brief one-time registration. Topics include:
- identifying barriers to care and discussing the impact of stigma and discrimination;
- taking action to create a more welcoming and safe health care center environment for LGBTQ patients;
- developing an understanding of LGBTQ patient-centered language; and,
- seeking capacity-building services to enhance LGBTQ responsiveness.
The webinars are led by PCDC’s Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) program, High Impact Prevention (HIP) in Health Care, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
