Cultural Competence Webinar Series

Quality Healthcare for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender People

This cultural competence webinar series explores the health concerns and healthcare of LGBT people and is open to anyone. We review the social determinants that influence how LGBT people seek and receive care and the impact those influences have on health. The series virtually follows the experience of LGBT people and those of us who care for them to better understand how we can create healthcare environments that are welcoming and can help minimize the existing disparities experienced by this population. We delve into the clinical concerns specific to LGBT persons- both in terms of physical health and mental health- so we can better understand how to create comprehensive systems of care that support positive outcomes and experiences for LGBT people and result in high quality healthcare.

The webinars are free and include content that has broad relevance to clinicians, administrators, researchers and academics alike. All are welcome and encouraged to attend and view the archives.

Part 2: Creating a Welcoming and Safe Environment for LGBT People and Families

Click here to access the archived webinar.

Building on the first part of GLMA’s cultural competence webinar series exploring the health concerns and healthcare of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, Part 2 will focus on creating a welcoming and safe healthcare environment. LGBT people face many barriers in accessing healthcare including discrimination, lack of access, misunderstanding and fear. As a consequence, many LGBT people do not regularly access appropriate and timely care. The more informed healthcare professionals are, the more comfortable LGBT patients and clients will feel in an environment that is often alienating, disrespectful and traumatic. In order to create a more welcoming environment, it is essential to look at each aspect from the front desk to the clinical level. Click here to read more about Part 2.


Part 3: Clinical Skills for the Care of Transgender Individuals

Click here to access the archived webinar.

Building on the first two parts of GLMA’s cultural competence webinar series exploring the health concerns and healthcare of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, Part 3 will focus on clinical skills for the care of transgender individuals, including behavioral health.
