Transgender Care in General Practice

Tue 2nd November @ 7:00 pm

Sydney North Health Network invites General Practitioners, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Pharmacists, hospital-based clinicians and residential aged care facility staff to this webinar aimed at improving care of transgender patients.

It is estimated that between 0.5% and 1% of the population is transgender or gender diverse. Studies suggest that transgender /gender diverse people have higher rates of mental health and drug and alcohol issues. It is known that gender affirming care improves mental health.

There are many barriers to accessing primary health care for transgender/ gender diverse people including limited GP experience and access to GP services, particularly around gender affirming therapy. Further, GPs themselves report lack of skills and knowledge in transgender/gender diverse care.
