CARING FOR GENDER DIVERSE PEDIATRIC AND ADOLESCENT POPULATIONS
Evidence to validate the need for the activity:
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex individuals and families face higher rates of discrimination in healthcare settings. which has been linked to poorer health outcomes. Nurses, worldwide, report a lack of awareness regarding LGBTQI+ health needs. This is especially true for LGBTQI+ pediatric health and family needs. Additionally, nurses have reported in the local pediatric hospital setting the increased number or children with these diverse gender needs and being uncomfortable or unprepared to provide care to these patients and families. The deficit in nursing education warrants a timely discussion of best practices for nurses.
Pediatric nurses, nurse leaders, and nurse educators.
