Christopher DiMichele, MSN, BSN, RN-BC, will present on patients facing healthcare concerns that may worry about receiving inequitable or substandard care because of their LGBTQ status. This presentation will bring to light the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of transgender patients. As well, healthcare workers can provide better and more appropriate culturally competent care. There is limited public perception of the transgender culture. Even more so within the healthcare industry. Providing education about the transgender culture and how healthcare workers can provide better and culturally competent care will help decrease hesitancies of transgender patients seeking healthcare and increase patient satisfaction.
