Teaching physicians how to interact with transgender patients
from By Dorothy L. Tengler
Although LGBT people share the same health risks as the rest of society, they also face a profound and poorly understood set of additional health risks because of social stigma. Medical education organizations have called for LGBT-sensitive training, but how and to what extent schools educate students to deliver comprehensive LGBT patient care remains unclear. Although guidelines exist for treating transgender patients, many physicians are poorly prepared.
