Health Care and LGBTQQI2S Inclusion

May 8, 2019 at 11:02am

On Sunday May 5th some of our Stewards attending the Health Care Conference participated in an optional pre-conference session about Health Care and LGBTQQI2S inclusion. The course, facilitated by EGALE Canada, focused on how health care workers can ensure their facilities are welcoming, inclusive, and safe for all patients and clients, and their families.

From understanding LGBTQQI2S language and identities, to reviewing some real-life scenarios, the course used activities and in-depth discussion to focus on what identity means and how we can implement best practices to respect the identities of others.
