Diverse

Whether your employer is a clinic, a hospital, home health, or long term care; whether you are an MD, RN, an occupational therapist, a receptionist, or in the C-Suite, approximately 5% - 10% of your patients may be gay, lesbian, or bisexual. Additional patients may be transgender, intersex, or questioning their gender identity or sexual orientation. The healthcare needs of LGBT patients may appear to be the same as other patients’, but institutionalized heterosexism in healthcare is a real barrier to quality care.

Healthcare providers acknowledge they are serving more LGBT patients, and that they want to provide quality LGBT care, but aren’t sure how to best create and implement the policies, procedures, and practices to ensure best patient outcomes. LGBT patients face a multitude of barriers to equitable care such as: refusals of care, delayed or substandard care, mistreatment, inequitable policies and practices, end-of-life issues, and limits on visitation. The challenges begin from the beginning of the health professionals’ relationship with their LGBT patient—starting from asking them to identify if they are male or female, married or single, on their intake form.
