Addressing the Needs of Your LGBTQ patients

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) population encounters unique challenges associated with their healthcare, which is accompanied by lesser outcomes when compared to that of their heterosexual equals. Several contributing factors including lack of insurance, an absence of culturally competent medical professionals that are trained in LGBTQ health issues, and the limitations of some electronic health record systems to properly identify gender. 

 Attendees of this meeting will be able to:

  • Identify the inequalities associated with the care of LGBTQ patients,
  • Discuss recent legislation affecting LGBTQ healthcare,
  • Utilize strategies to communicate effectively with the LGBTQ patient, and
  • Implement measures to mitigate the liability risks associated with treating this patient population.

Jointly provided by NYACP and the NY Medical Directors Association (NYMDA)
CME and MOC available!

Take your problem-solving and leadership skills to the next level! Discuss why true root causes are required for investigating an adverse event and applying solutions to mitigate similar problems in the future. Discover how formally applying root causes analysis as a process of investigation or thinking method also enhances effective leadership.

Adverse events can occur in healthcare, and we aim to prevent further incidents. Root cause thinking enables us to thoroughly break down and comprehend the problem. In this session, Dr. Thomas Wong will review the origins of Root Cause Analysis in healthcare, offer examples of how RCA aids in analyzing adverse events, and outline the major steps and actions required to complete the RCA process.
