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.
