Session 4: Creating a Welcoming Environment

Going to see the doctor can be a scary experience – especially for LGBTQ+ patients. The fear of experiencing discrimination from healthcare providers can lead LGBTQ+ individuals to avoid receiving needed medical care until it is too late. This is why creating an LGBTQ+ welcoming environment is so important.

In this fully online, self-guided, interactive session, you will learn about the four components of creating a more welcoming environment: public image, physical environment, systems and practices, and patient interactions. You’ll be asked to think about the messages your office currently conveys to LGBTQ+ people, and we’ll show you the different tools you can use to become a more welcoming provider.

Released in May 2022.
