Event description

Description

One of San Mateo County BHRS' strategic initiatives is to reduce healthcare disparities in the LGBTQ+ populations. In order to achieve this goal, we will start collecting data on sexual orientation and gender identity of all our patients/clients. This will require extensive staff training in LGBTQ+ health and psychosocial issues faced by LGBTQ+ populations.

After this training, participants will be able to:

1) Describe the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity.

2) List two examples of why collecting SOGI data is important.

3) Demonstrate three examples of using respectful gender neutral communication with clients.
