This course focuses on population-responsive care for LGBTQIA+ clients. To fully understand the importance of LGBTQIA+ affirmative care, we highlight some pertinent history, health disparities, and the communities' resiliency. Then, we give Information and guidance on LGBTQIA+ affirmative care that you can utilize tomorrow in your clinical or educational practice regardless of setting, population, or age. We provide tips for how to continue learning about LGBTQIA+ affirmative care and LGBTQIA+ individuals, perspectives, and experiences. We compiled and offer over 50 resources to support you in this continued learning process.
What learners are say:
“The fact that there were two presenters, who identify differently in terms of both pronouns and sexual preference. It offered a broader perspective and it didn't feel like cultural voyeurism. As a gay man myself I really appreciated Wades presence, participation and perspectives.” - Van, OT
"Despite my fluency and knowledge generally of LGBTQIA+ culture, I found the breakdowns and examples of the language used a helpful review. I valued the identification of the approaches used when applying inclusivity into practice such as cultural humility because I can further research these. The case examples also brought the previously learned information together." - Robin, OT
"I have never worked where there was any awareness of LGBTQ inclusivity practices despite co-workers who were LGBTQ. This was a burden for them to always be educating others. All OTs need to do LGBT training and educate themselves. Several examples were provided which are helpful to implement into clinical practice." - Melissa, OTA
