Gender Affirming Treatment

Accessing medical care can often present frustrating and undermining obstacles for the LGBTQ+ community. Transgender and non-binary individuals face gender and sexuality bias by healthcare providers, researchers, and electronic health records, a study found.

As a step forward, transgender and non-binary researchers from across the United States and Canada describe how health record data can be modified to be more inclusive and representative of a gender-diverse population. Gender-affirming care describes medical, psychological, and social support services provided to individuals who are transgender, non-binary, or gender expansive. The goal is to assist individuals in aligning their sense of self with their outward appearance to improve overall well-being.

Dr. Alex Jimenez (He/Him) believes in the importance of a safe space and offering dedicated care for individuals using gender-affirming language.
