Health Science Lecture Teaching Complex

Organised by:
Health and Human Rights Group HHRG

Hi all! This year HHRG is running a new and exciting seminar to shine a light on factors shaping the diverse community of LGBTQI patients.

Despite being a large demographic of our society, there is little dialogue about this community in medical or allied health training.

In this evening seminar, we will hear from a mix of exciting speakers from the healthcare field who can share medical knowledge and personal experiences as members of the LGBTQI community.

We will focus on conducting appropriate and respectful interactions with LBGTQI patients who might otherwise find health care situations awkward and uncomfortable – or vice versa. During the night we will discuss techniques for taking a sexual history and physical examination; how to address transgender patients - he/she pronouns; and general issues affecting both LBGTQI health professionals and patients.

These are skills that could be used in any healthcare setting and we look forward to welcoming you to what will be an insightful and engaging event.

There will only be 70 places available for the workshop, so sign-up quick! Light refreshments will be provided.
