The purpose of this "train the trainer" course is so participants can conduct this training in their facilities and promote diversity, inclusion, acceptance, and improve patient outcomes. The class will begin with self-introductions and then discussion of the health disparities in LGBT+ patients and how healthcare providers can improve outcomes. The activities will begin with a vocabulary match up game where participants will learn important and appropriate LGBT+ terminology to improve patient communication. The participants will also engage in an activity that allows them to create diverse and inclusive work-spaces for staff and patients. The Cass Model (by Dr. Vivien Cass) will be demonstrated so the participants can understand the psychological process of "coming out" and best communication techniques to approach a patient who is in each phase of the model. The participants will also be given an activity that requires them to identify myths and stereotypes bestowed upon LGBT+ patients and how these labels affect their health. The concept of gender fluidity will be discussed and compared to traditional binary views of masculinity and femininity. Participants will be taught how to create a psychologically safe spaces through respectful communication and self-reflection. Most importantly, a guest speaker will be present to share story and answer questions from participants.
