Trends in LGBTQ Policies and Practices: Results from a National Online Survey of Healthcare Facilities
June 25, 2019 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
In this webinar, part of the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity's LGBTQ Virtual Journey Learning series, Tari Hanneman, director of the Health Equality Project with the Human Rights Campaign, will discuss the best practices currently recommended to hospitals to improve LGBTQ patient care. Utilizing tools such as the Healthcare Equality Index (HEI), the national LGBTQ benchmarking tool that evaluates health care facilities' policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of their LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees, Hanneman will share insights from the forthcoming HEI 2019 report. Furthermore, the webinar will provide an overview on health care efforts to address the LGBTQ population and gaps that still exist. Participants will gain an understanding of what strategies and resources have proved most effective in encouraging facilities to provide equitable and competent care for all.
