Image of organization logo

Optimizing Care for Transgender and Other Gender Non-Confirming Populations was developed in response to the high volume of queries from clinicians and health care staff seeking to learn about providing high-quality care for adults, adolescents, and children who are questioning their gender identity or who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. This conference is designed to train the whole health care team in providing competent and confident gender-affirmative health care, grounded in research evidence and best clinical practices. Sessions are led by expert faculty specialized in transgender-focused research and patient care. The conference is appropriate for all members of health care teams, including physicians, behavioral health care providers, physician assistants, nurses, and other staff.

Conference topics will include:

• Gender Affirmative Health Care: Terminology, Demographics, and Epidemiology
• Transgender Children and Young Adolescents
• Best Practices in Behavioral Health for Transgender Clients
• HIV Prevention Strategies for the Transgender Population
