Open the Door for LGBTQ Patients

This month’s Nursing has a free CE offering, Open the Door for LGBTQ Patients. I like it for it’s review of terminology and suggested history questions, along with its reference section, which includes the Joint Commission’s field guide (PDF), and the IOM report on the health of LGBTQ people. It’s a short and easy read (meaning it’s a brief overview, so this shouldn’t be the only thing you read on the subject), and there are education credits attached if you need them, so probably a good way to spend a little time. Do follow the footnotes–they will lead you to some concepts we don’t spend nearly enough time talking about in our professional circles. Intersectionality, anyone?
