Summary:

Sexual health and sexuality have received significant attention in the last decade across the spectrum of human-service providers. In spite of increasing awareness of the importance of sex, gender identity, and sexuality in all aspects of health, barriers to the advancement of knowledge about sex differences in health and illness persist. This module presents an overview of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community and its contentious history with the healthcare systems. Definitions of key concepts related to sexuality and gender variables and general implications for clinical education, practice, and research will be discussed.
 
 

Objectives:

 
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 the understanding of issues that the LGBTQ community has when navigating and using the healthcare system. After taking this course, you should be able to:
 
  • Define key terminology related to sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender.
  • Describe historical events and context affecting the LGBTQ community.
