People who get into health care usually have one thing at the forefront of their minds: to help people. Most of us do not have the intention of discriminating against others or treating them badly, Most healthcare professionals look at the issues at hand and start putting together a plan to fix them.

Our clients come in all shapes, colors, ages, and issues. Every single one of those people will have unique things about them, which makes them who they are. Many of these unique qualities will be quite obvious, such as race and gender. But, other things that set clients apart might not be so obvious. It is usually the unobvious things that lead to misunderstandings, which can lead to discrimination with or without intent.

The LGBTQ cultures are no different; there will be obvious things that are unique unto them and other things that are not quite so obvious. It is our job, as healthcare professionals, to look at everyone as a whole person and treat them accordingly, regardless of their obvious or unobvious differences.

This course examines some of the issues that the LGBTQ community face when dealing with health issues and healthcare professionals, The reluctance of an LGBTQ client to openly share information may cause irritation for the professional due to feeling that the client is being purposefully difficult. The reality may be that the last medical professional chastised them so completely that the client may not want to share anything at all.

This is a complex issue and is one that needs to be addressed, especially in the healthcare community. People in the LGBTQ community tend to be loyal to businesses and other places that make them feel comfortable. And that is why we are in the healthcare field.

This is a course that will open your eyes and demonstrate how to create a comfortable, inclusive practice that makes everyone feel welcomed and safe.
