Improving care for transgender and gender diverse patients (MGPO QI: Term 2 2021)

Background:
 
Despite increasing visibility and social acceptance, many transgender and gender diverse (TGD) people encounter discrimination when seeking medical care and/or limited knowledge of their health needs on the part of clinicians (2015 U.S. Transgender Survey Report). These negative experiences can result in patients delaying care or not seeking care altogether.
 
QI Activity:
 
This learning activity aims to help our clinicians build core competencies and better serve TGD patients by asking physicians to:
 
Part 1: Participate in a case discussion which will highlight key concepts in health care for transgender and gender diverse people 30 min
 
Part 2: Provide 3 changes to your practice based on this learning 5-10 min
