In this lesson, we will define transgender and different types of sexual identity and affiliation. We will also introduce terminology appropriate for discussing sexual and gender identity. We will then summarize some health disparities that clients within this vulnerable population may experience. Finally we will review nursing interventions and communication techniques aimed at promoting a therapeutic relationship and minimizing judgement while working with clients that are transgender or that identify with different sexual or gender orientations.
Upon the completion of this course, learners will be able to:
- Define transgender
- Recognize culturally appropriate terminology related to gender identity
- Illustrate health disparities within the transgender population
