Provision of culturally sensitive healthcare to transgender and non-gender binary individuals

Effective gender affirmation processes are often functions of culturally-adept healthcare providers and access to influential medication therapies. A proper understanding of the daily plight of gender-nonconforming and transgendered individuals in such quests to operate in their truths is therefore essential. This presentation is designed to explore the capacity of the healthcare system to meet the evolving needs of non-gender binary and transgender populations. The content conveyed is also expected to compel healthcare practitioners to expand their knowledge to become better facilitators of optimal outcomes for the transgendered and gender-nonconforming communities.

Objectives:

  • Discuss stigmatizing factors that affect transgender and non-gender binary individuals’ access to and retention within the healthcare system.
  • Examine the logistics of gender reassignment surgeries and their level of accessibility to individuals seeking transition.
  • Evaluate prescription use patterns of estrogen/testosterone products in the gender reassignment/affirmation process.
  • Analyze non-prescription, e.g., black market or internet-based, acquisition and use patterns of estrogen/testosterone products in the gender reassignment/affirmation process.
  • Assess drug-drug interactions that may occur between estrogen/testosterone-based preparations and concomitant medication therapies.
