Description

This continuing educational activity is an innovative medical symposium designed to update physicians and other health care professionals to become more familiar with caring for the LGBTQ patient and overcoming the barriers to care. Participants will learn about ways in which health care providers can support LGBTQ youth in navigating these challenges and improving their health outcomes. It will also address consent and confidentiality issues related to sexual and reproductive health care, as well as to disclosure of sexual orientation and gender identity among LGBTQ minors and young adults.

Whether you are aware of it or not, youth in your care may be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity. These young people are dealing not only with the challenges of life in foster care but also with the risk of harassment and mistreatment because they are LGBTQ, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer. LGBTQ youth experience unique health and developmental challenges compared to their peers.
