Session 6: Considerations and Risks for Gynecologic and Breast/Chest Cancers in Transgender Patients

When accessing cancer care, transgender and gender-nonconforming people often have to deal with many unique obstacles – be it financial insecurity, fear of discrimination, or lack of provider knowledge. As healthcare providers, you can greatly improve the quality of care transgender patients receive by filling your knowledge gaps before you encounter transgender patients.

This fully online, self-guided, interactive session is designed around the most frequently asked questions about health and health care for transgender individuals. By the end of the session, you should be able to describe, explain, and identify the most important considerations and risks for your transgender and gender-nonconforming patients, and understand how you can move forward as a better LGBTQ+ cancer care provider.

Released in June 2022 and eligible for 1.0 CE credits.
