LGBT Cultural Competency Strategies Webinar
Wednesday, May 25
12:00 – 1:30 CDT
Director, Network for LGBT Health Equity
Liz Margolies, LCSW
Executive Director, National LGBT Cancer Network
Sexual and gender minority (SGM) health care issues have recently come into the spotlight. From the Executive Order on hospital visitation, to the rash of youth suicides last fall, the new Joint Commission expectations on disparity populations, and finally to the March release of the historic Institute of Medicine report “The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Understanding,” we have both better tools and greater expectations for ensuring all health care facilities are culturally competent in serving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. But what is cultural competence for this population? Join two leading trainers on this issue, the Director of the Network for LGBT Health Equity and the Executive Director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, as they give you the behind-the-scenes orientation on the topic and an update on best strategies in the field now.
The presentation will review some of the stark health disparities that have driven the recent changes, the shifting national policies and expectations, and examine some of the basic issues in LGBT cultural competency. They will also present available tools for hospitals to use to train staff, including the debut of a training currently being given to 39,000 employees of the New York City Health and Hospital Corporation.
