Informing Nursing Practice to Deliver Effective Healthcare to Sexual and Gender Minority Populations

Part One of a new LGBT Webinar Series

The first webinar in this new series will describe the health disparities evidenced in sexual and gender minority (SGM) populations and address drivers of these disparities using a biopsychosocial framing. The experiences of SGM individuals with healthcare will also be examined. Concrete approaches for addressing the shortcomings within the healthcare system to fully address the wellbeing of SGM individuals will be provided. Examples and strategies for working with members of the population will be drawn from my own research and those of other scholars.

Presentation Learning Objectives:

  • Define terms, concepts and approaches related to sexual and gender minority (SGM, LGBTQ+) health
  • Summarize the health disparities faced by SGM populations
  • Delineate the healthcare challenges faced by SGM individuals
  • Apply strategies for working with the SGM populations in healthcare settings
