LGBTQ Cultural Awareness

LGBT Hero Image

All patients are unique. One thing they have in common, however, is that they want their healthcare providers to see them as a whole person. Many organizations understand that “one-size-fits-all” doesn’t meet the needs of their patients and this is particularly true for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities. With a focus on increasing the utilization of HIV testing, prevention and linkage/retention to care services, the Denver PTC assists healthcare organizations to deliver culturally competent care to their LGBT patients.

The Denver PTC can assist with:

  • Staff training on culturally responsive care of LGBT patients
  • Consultation on creating inclusive clinical environments for LGBT patients
  • LGBT patient and community engagement plans
  • Data collection and quality improvement methodology to better measure LGBT services and patient satisfaction
  • Staff training on sexual history taking and tracking within the electronic medical record
