A history of stigma and discrimination has contributed to a number of health disparities experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer patients. With this in mind, it’s important that all healthcare organizations create an inclusive care environment for LGBTQ patients. Proper staff training is essential in order to ensure each patient receives the best possible care.
On this webinar, our content partner Cedar Interactive will explain the laws regarding LGBTQ Patient Care, Medicare & Medicaid compliance both for visitors and medical decision-makers, anti-discrimination regulations, sensitivity and appropriate treatment for all LGBTQ patients. Cedar Interactive has created an important online learning environment for healthcare providers that focuses on providing supportive and affirming care to patients of different sexual orientations and gender identities to ensure the best possible outcomes for these patients.
