Webinar
Speakers:
Adrian Shanker, executive director of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center and editor of recently published Bodies and Barriers: Queer Activists on Health

Description:

Members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community have long described experiencing stigma, and lack awareness and education about their needs in healthcare environments. Delay or lack of treatment for medical and psychiatric symptoms is a patient safety issue that can lead to poor patient outcomes. In this webinar, we invite Adrian Shanker, executive director of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center and editor of recently published Bodies and Barriers: Queer Activists on Health (PM Press, March 2020), to discuss the importance of listening to LGBTQ patient experiences and steps healthcare facilities can take to provide a safe, inclusive environment.

 

1.0 continuing education hours will be awarded for completion of this webinar. Continuing education credits apply to Pennsylvania registered nurses only.
