Transgender Health Learning series
Like all people, each transgender “trans” person’s life is a different journey. Trans people are no different except they face unique challenges and opportunities specific to being trans. The seven courses follow a track that many trans people follow in their journey through life.
"What is trans" and "what does this mean" are elements covered in the first course. Components to friendly and competent healthcare along with barriers and solutions will be found in the second course. Creating an inclusive LGBTQ+ workplace environment is covered in the third course.
Psychological distress, a common theme for many trans people and especially youth, is discussed in the fourth course.
Not all trans people transition; but for those who do transition, they may acquire hormones for this process. Transition-related hormone replacement therapy is described in the fifth course. Many trans people undergo surgery and its attendant issues are surfaced in the sixth course. The seventh course explores patient-centered and comparative clinical effectiveness research outcomes.
Taken together, we hope this path illuminates and informs you about the transgender healthcare environment.
