Achieving Health Equity for LGBT People: HRC Video Course

Healthy People 2020 and the Institute of Medicine have identified key health disparities faced by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) populations. Outreach and engagement of LGBT populations as indicated in the Affordable Care Act is a critical role for health care organizations in terms of providing culturally responsive and population based care to reduce disparities.

To help health care providers and organizations learn more about providing affirming care for their LGBT patients, the HRC Foundation and National LGBT Health Education Center have partnered to create this video lecture. The session provides an overview of LGBT health disparities including HIV and AIDS, demographics, and terminology, as well as key strategies for bringing high qualitycare to LGBT people at health centers and other health care organizations. Strategies for collection of sexual orientation and gender identity data in clinical settings will be addressed. Viewers will also learn about creating LGBT-inclusive environments of care and about the intersections of LGBT health, population health and team-based care.
