Increasing awareness of healthcare disparities and unique health needs of LGBTQ2S people calls for a revitalization of health professional training programs. As new topics become integrated into these programs, there is a great need for a comprehensive resource that aligns with Canadian guidelines and standards of care.Caring for LGBTQ2S People identifies gaps in care and health care disparities, and provides clinicians with both the knowledge and the tools to continue to improve the health of LGBTQ2S people. Written by expert authors, this fully updated version builds on the critically praised first edition and highlights the significant social, medical, and legal progress that has occurred in Canada since 2003. The book includes general medical information and guidance that is useful for anyone providing care to LGBTQ2S people. Chapters in this edition provide background on the fundamentals of language, cultural competency, and the patient-provider relationship, and include contemporary and expanded discussion on STIs, HIV, substance use, mental health, fertility, and trans health. This clinical guide is written for a general and trainee-level reader in health care and primary care and showcases a comprehensive understanding of LGBTQ2S health while also concluding with unique considerations for those who experience an intersection of diverse identities.
