Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO), a program of Sherbourne Health, developed this seven-module course on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and Two-Spirit (LGBT2SQ) health for healthcare and social service providers. These modules will help build your foundational knowledge for providing care to LGBT2SQ people.
This course’s goal is to heighten your comfort level and competency in providing high-quality inclusive, affirming, welcoming; culturally sensitive care. In the course you will build your understanding of important LGBT2SQ terminology. You will also learn to understand the context of minority stress; health disparities faced by LGBT2SQ people; improve your ability to provide comprehensive care for your service users from diverse LGBT2SQ communities.
Each module will take about 30 minutes to complete. The module’s activities are designed to inspire critical thinking about the course principles so you can apply your knowledge and skills in your daily practice.
