Caring for LGBT Residents in California Nursing Facilities 

Sexual and gender minorities are becoming more visible in the long-term care industry. Ethical and regulatory standards state that one cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. It is important that you learn how to interact with others without engaging in unintentional discriminatory behaviors. In this course, you will learn how to make your practice more affirmative by learning about the LGBT population, influences on LGBT individuals, increasing your self-awareness, the foundations of working effectively with the LGBT population, and information needed to satisfy California regulations, 22 CCR § 72517, specific to staff development about LGBT individuals.
