Caring for Transgender Patients

About the Course

In the words of our guest, “you can accept your patients into your office but if you're not affirming them by honoring their chosen name and pronoun and having all gender bathrooms and having them see themselves on the walls of your practice, then you're not affirming them.” This podcast is an honest dialogue about experiences of transgender and non-binary patients, and examples of how caregivers can impact that experience.
