This is the 2-hour "Workshop Style" presentation.
Overview: People who identify as LGBTQ2+ have a greater likelihood, as many other minority groups, of experiencing barriers in accessing care which is culturally safe and appropriate for them. This session will identify some of the challenges these persons face and some of the strategies providers can consider, especially when caring for those who are aging or dying and their families.
• Identify the components of cultural safety, including cultural humility, sensitivity, awareness and cultural competence and how these affect care
• Become aware of the particular challenges and experiences of people who identify as LGBTQ2+
• Identify ways your workplace can address these challenges and provide culturally sensitive care
• Recognize how personal and societal biases and values influence care and identify mechanisms to address these for yourself and your workplace
