||Description: The presenter will illustrate best practices in population-specific educational initiatives for health care providers by highlighting a recent gender-affirmation pilot.
Due to widespread social stigma and cultural bias, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals are often denied access to, avoid, and experience inferior outcomes from health care. Insights will be discussed on the importance of recognizing and addressing the CE provider’s own lack of awareness regarding cultural myths and misconceptions, health care disparities and gender expression. The presenter will also examine how inclusion initiatives were used to determine overall educational design, and develop a new outcomes methodology to measure the effect of attitudinal and behavior shifts on clinical skills and practice changes.
Learning Objective 1: Extrapolate educational strategies that promote compassionate and culturally competent care for under-served populations with specific needs and critical care gaps
Learning Objective 2: Utilize population-specific outcome measures that assess attitudinal and behavioral shifts in clinical skills and practice changes.
