The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Community, Part 1

Green Clock Hours: 1.50

Sexual health and sexuality have received significant attention in the last decade, not just from healthcare stakeholders but also across the spectrum of human-service providers. In spite of the increasing awareness of the importance of sex, gender identity, and sexuality in all aspects of health, barriers to the advancement of knowledge about sex differences in health and illness persist. This module presents an overview of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community and its contentious history with the healthcare systems. Definitions of key concepts related to sexuality and gender variables and general implications for clinical education, practice, and research will be discussed. The goal of this educational course for social work, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, speech language pathology and audiology, medical, and physical therapy professionals is to enhance the understanding of issues that the LGBTQ community has when navigating and using the healthcare system. In this module, the acronym LGBTQ will be used when referring to all groups (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer). In cases where the literature cited refers specifically to lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender populations, the course will use corresponding initials.
