About this event

In nursing school we cover a broad range of material, but as we provide care we encounter patient scenarios in which we find ourselves thinking, “I wish we learned this in nursing school.” Transgender health care is a common knowledge gap for health care providers, but it does not have to remain that way. In this session we will cover the in’s and out’s of gender affirming care, the role of the bedside nurse in assessing risk, and communication tips to foster an inclusive patient-provider relationship. 

The first half of this hour-long session will be dedicated to education and resource sharing and the second half will be live Q&A, so come with questions! 

All nurses are welcome to this event, just make sure you RSVP.
