LGBT issues in healthcare – concise mini-course
Helping LGBT+ patients in healthcare – an online short lesson for healthcare students.
Time: about 30 mins, including viewing video clips.
There is a perception that society’s tolerance of sexual variation has improved, and this is true – to a degree. LGBT individuals continue to report many awkwardnesses and real obstacles when accessing health services, to a degree that is difficult for others to understand. Hearing it from those most directly affected brings it home.
A series of short video interview clips was put together by staff and students at Edinburgh University. See the foot of the page for more information, including information about re-using these materials.
