UI Health Care's LGBTQ clinic has trained all members of the health care team including providers, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and ancillary staff in culturally competent care principles. We strive to create an environment where all patients feel welcomed and affirmed regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We have found the following resources to be quite helpful with regard to increasing your own knowledge or training your staff.
