REGISTRATION OPEN: Fostering Inclusion of LGBT Patients & Employees, AHE Face-to-Face Educational Program, 1.5 CEUs

Wed Jun. 20 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Event Details

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients face many challenges in accessing knowledgeable, unbiased and welcoming healthcare in all practice settings. The potential and/or fear of receiving derogatory remarks, unequitable care, or being turned away from treatment often deters some of the LGBT community and their families from seeking healthcare services. Healthcare equality for all people is a guiding principle of the healthcare management profession. However, discrimination towards the LGBT community continues in the healthcare environment today. This panel discussion will focus on the need to strengthen the pursuance of equity of care and to foster inclusion of LGBT patients and employees.
