Description

In collaboration with Trans Care BC and VCH Trans Specialty Care and Prism Services, a 3-hour training session will be held for providers interested in learning more about providing Trans primary care. The objectives of this session are to:

1. Provide an overview of gender affirming medical care including trans-inclusive history taking and language, options for medical transition including cross-sex hormones and surgery, and

2. Discuss the implications of medical transition on the ongoing primary care needs for transgender people.

At the end of the session, information on receiving preceptorship and office staff training will be provided. Potential participation in patient transition may be discussed.

We will try to videoconference this session as well. Please check back here for details on how to access this session by videoconference closer to the event.
