LGBT Cultural Competence of Acute Care Nurses.
J Nurses Prof Dev 2019 May/Jun; 35(3):125-131JN

Abstract

This study implemented an educational intervention to increase lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) cultural competence among nurses using a pretest-posttest design. A statistically significant increase in cultural competence was identified. Once informed of the health status disparities among this demographic, nurses can influence healthcare environments and promote policies to be inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender patients. Improved cultural competence through professional development can lead to decreased barriers to care.
