Youth Gender Diversity

Transgender issues are currently very topical, but overall there are still many misunderstandings, myths and predjudices, even within the health professional community. The attitudes we display as healthcare workers have the ability to help and to harm individuals, which can lead to people not engaging with the health system due to fear or anger from past healthcare interactions.

Course Overview

Transgender issues are currently very topical, but overall there are still many misunderstandings, myths and predjudices, even within the health professional community. The attitudes we display as healthcare workers have the ability to help and to harm individuals, which can lead to people not engaging with the health system due to fear or anger from past healthcare interactions. Sex, gender and sexuality are all common terms, but are often used incorrectly. Understanding more about the issues can promote a safer more compassionate environment for patients.

Dr Riley will be leading a discussion with us to help us get a better understanding of the issues facing transgender youth and children and how we as nurses might be able to best support the child/youth and their families.
