Intro to Transgender Cultural Safety in Healthcare

This 90-minute session will focus on developing skills to welcome and support trans, Two-Spirit and gender diverse individuals who receive our care; in order to increase safety and access for folks, and promote health and wellness.

All staff are strongly encouraged to attend! We have many trans, Two-Spirit and gender diverse patients and clients who access our services. Cultural safety awareness in working with LGBT2QI+ folks is a core competency requirement for our work, and reflects our VCH Values.

This session will be facilitated by Parker Hewes and Kelendria Nation from Prism Services. It will cover:

-language & key concepts relating to trans/2S and gender diverse people
-what transition may involve & issues unique to trans/2S and gender diverse folks
-societal discrimination and family rejection
-working alongside folks in allyship and solidarity
-gender–affirming care in practice
