Culturally responsive health care – patient-centered care that considers social and cultural factors – is an important element in preventing and treating HIV, reducing health disparities within LGBTQ communities, and contributing to collective efforts to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic. To help health care staff incorporate cultural responsiveness when working with LGBTQ communities, the Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC) is offering a FREE three-part webinar health series.
The webinars are intended for health care staff from all fields (medicine, social work, navigation) that work to prevent, diagnose, or treat patients living with HIV/AIDS. The series will encourage participants to:
Identify barriers to care
Take action to create a more welcoming and safe health care center environment for LGBTQ patients
Develop an understanding of LGBTQ patient-centered language
Seek capacity-building services to enhance LGBTQ responsiveness.
