Summary:

The Health and Medicine Division’s (HMD) (formerly the Institute of Medicine) Healthy People 2020 and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality have highlighted the health disparities affecting LGBTQ populations. As evidence of health-illness patterns continues to be reported in the literature, this module presents the complex social determinants of health unique among the LGBTQ community. Information will be analyzed based on the four conceptual perspectives for understanding LGBTQ health suggested by the HMD: minority stress, intersectionality, life-course framework, and social ecology.
 
The goal of this educational course for social work, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, speech language pathology and audiology, medical, and physical therapy professionals is to enhance their understanding of issues of the LGBTQ community within the healthcare system.

Objectives:

After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Identify the lifespan health considerations of LGBTQ individuals (childhood, adolescence, adulthood, older adulthood), including coming out and family systems.
  • Describe social determinants of health and health disparities among LGBTQ populations.
  • Discuss LGBTQ health risk factors, including physical, mental, psychosocial, and cultural.
  • Describe barriers faced by LGBTQ people in accessing healthcare and why these barriers exist.
  • Identify strategies for providing sensitive and informed healthcare for the LGBTQ community.
