10 Tips for Working with Transgender Individuals: A guide for health care providers

Source: Transgender Law Center, October 2005

As a health care provider, you likely encounter and serve a population that is diverse with regards to race, nationality, immigration status, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, medical condition, and disability, among other issues. At the Transgender Law Center, we recognize that many health care providers are eager to provide a safe, welcoming treatment environment for members of the transgender community, yet may not have had the opportunity to access information about the needs and experiences of this marginalized population. With this barrier in mind, we have created this pamphlet so that we may work in partnership with providers to improve quality of care and provider-patient outcomes.
