NCCHCA Webinar Series: Outreach to the LGBT Community


Outreach to the LGBT Community Presented by The Fenway Institute (National LGBT Health Education Center) Healthy People 2020 and the Institute of Medicine have identified key health disparities faced by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) population. Engagement of LGBT populations is critical to providing culturally responsive care and population based health to reduce these disparities. In spite of the advancements in LGBT acceptance and policy, many LGBT people remain largely invisible to their primary care providers. This webinar will present best practices in outreach to the LGBT community, including: strategies for engagement of local LGBT community members and organizations; effective communication with LGBT people; strategies for sexual orientation and gender identity data collection; and creating an inclusive and affirming health care environment for LGBT patients, families, and staff. Learning Objectives: • Participants will be able to describe LGBT concepts, terms, and health disparities; • Participants will identify strategies for proactive outreach to and engagement of local LGBT residents, leaders, organizations; • Participants will understand how to incorporate SO/GI data collection into your EHR to improve communication, quality care, and data and quality management activities; and, • Participants will identify ways to develop policies, forms, processes, and physical spaces within the health care environment that are inclusive and affirming of the LGBT community.
