  • WEBINAR - Care of the Same Sex Family

    Includes Credits

    Disparities exist in the health care system in regards to the quantity and quality of care received by LGBTQ individuals and same sex families as compared to heterosexual individuals and families. Nurses and health care providers require increased knowledge about this population and strategies to effectively communicate and care for individuals and families in this community. Many nurses and health care providers lack knowledge about the LGBTQ population and same sex families; they have not been educated in strategies to deliver culturally appropriate care.
