Session 1: Terminology and Pronouns

Knowing your client’s or patient’s sexual orientation and gender identity is crucial to helping you create a welcoming environment where all patients feel safe and respected. In order to do that, you must first recognize what these terms mean and how to use them respectfully. You’ll explore terminology associated with LGBTQ+ communities, including the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation; practice using pronouns and gender-neutral language; and develop a strategy for when you mess up. In this fully online, self-guided, interactive session, you will be introduced to foundational information you’ll need to succeed in the rest of this course and ultimately start effectively and respectfully treating your LGBTQ+ clients or patients.

Developed in collaboration with the National LGBTQ Cancer Network, this is the first of a series of eight sessions in the course. CE is available for each session. 

Released in March 2022.
