Decreasing Barriers to Sexual Health in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Community.
Nurs Clin North Am. 2020 09; 55(3):393-402.NC

Abstract

There is a need to increase improve the delivery of health care for sexual minorities. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community has historically experienced bias, discrimination, and perceived inadequate or inappropriate care. Reduction of this barrier can begin by providers addressing implicit bias and creating a welcoming, safe environment for all persons seeking care. Using preferred name and pronouns and obtaining a sexual health history that is individualized and free from assumption is imperative. This article provides interventions to diminish barriers to care and foster provider preparedness for the care of LGBTQ individuals.
