Many healthcare organizations struggle with understanding how to navigate the evolving coverage and compliance landscape when caring for LGBTQ patients. This session will review terminology, clinical considerations and the legal and regulatory requirements around documentation, privacy and compliance. Through institutional approaches that understand and support various sexualities and gender identities, healthcare providers can better care for the entire patient population.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
1. Recognize the evolving coverage and compliance landscape as it pertains to LGBTQ patients.
2. Describe the health problems and treatment issues specific to the LGBTQ community.
3. Identify institutional approaches and policies that support LGBTQ patients.
