U072 - LGBT Health: Providing Culturally Competent Care to Patients who are Sexual and Gender Minorities

Sunday, February 18; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Summarize demographics and terminology important in providing culturally competent care to LGBT persons.
  • Recognize dermatologically relevant infectious and non-infectious diseases and conditions important in caring for LGBT persons.
  • Apply best practices in taking a sexual history and recognizing gender identification and gender history.

Description

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons face unique health challenges and disparities. Contributing to those disparities is a shortage of physicians with cultural competence in providing care to LGBT persons, according to the U.S. government’s Healthy People 2020 plan. Healthy People 2020 specifically prioritizes improving LGBT health. This session aims to improve dermatologists’ ability to provide culturally competent care to LGBT persons. Topics include demographics; terminology; epidemiology of dermatologically relevant infectious and non-infectious diseases; public health recommendations regarding HIV and STD testing, sexual health-related vaccinations, and HIV prophylaxis (PrEP and PEP); and taking a sexual and gender-identity history.
