Health Care Providers/Hospitals

The New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) educates healthcare providers on Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) issues and how to best serve the TGNC community. Our interactive curriculum includes case studies exploring real-life examples of how to best serve the TGNC community.This 4-module training is aimed at healthcare providers and hospitals in order to ensure they provide effective care to the TGNC community. Each module is designed to tackle issues such as bias within practice, difficulties in providing healthcare, and challenges in creating effective healthcare programs catered towards TGNC people.

Overall Objectives

  • Articulate the different types of bias and describe how they facilitate the perpetuation of health disparities amongst TGNC communities
  • Reflect on your own biases and how they might impact your relationships with TGNC patients and/or traumatize your TGNC-identified clients
  • Apply effective strategies to better support the needs of the TGNC community and promote their access to optimal and equitable health services
