Conversations in Ethics – Providing Gender and Orientation Affirming Patient Care: Clinical Care Updates and Ethical Considerations

Miami, FL US
October 23, 2019

Research reveals health disparities when comparing heterosexual with gay, lesbian and bisexual youth and adults, as well as transgender and non-transgender populations. Gay and bisexual patients are at greater risk for cardiovascular disease, sexually transmitted diseases, obesity, and substance use. Even more dramatic health disparities, including higher incidence of suicidal ideation and feeling rejected by healthcare providers, is found among patients who identify as intersex, transgender, or gender non-binary. What can each medical professional do to help reduce these disparities, and provide more affirming patient care, interpersonally and in the larger health system environment? How can medical professionals navigate ethical dilemmas that can arise when serving these patients?

Join us as Dr. Lauren Abern, OB/GYN from Planned Parenthood of South, East, and North Florida, and Joseph Zolobczuk, MS Ed. from YES Institute, open a conversation about these topics. The presentation will include a panel of patients and their families who will share their personal experiences within healthcare settings, and engage in dialogue focused on improving care delivery and health outcomes.

Target Audience

Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Pharmacists, Respiratory Therapists, Clinical Chaplains, Medical Students, and other interested healthcare professionals.
