Part 2: Providing Affirming Nursing Care for Black LGBTQ Community Members

Oct 15, 2020  05:59 PM  ET

This workshop will include three components aimed at equipping nurses to provide more affirming care for Black LGBTQ patients: educational, discussion, and application. Specifically, the workshop will start with an overview of research about health risk and resilience factors among Black LGBTQ people. It will then move to a discussion of nurses’ experiences with Black LGBTQ people and how they have addressed risk and resilience in their clinical care with them. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to brainstorm concrete ways to use resilience to positively impact the patient-provider relationship and treatment/prevention outcomes. All participants will be provided with handouts of the information presented in the workshop and given the opportunity to ask questions.

Presented by:

  • Dr. Jonathan Lassiter, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Rowan University
