As health professionals, we are often challenged in understanding and supporting the complex healthcare needs of the diverse gay, bisexual/non-gay identified/MSM and trans women clients we serve.  Clients bring their expectations, experiences, beliefs, communication styles, and attitudes to all healthcare encounters. Health professionals also bring their own assumptions and previous experiences with clients of a particular culture or group to the encounter. These different perspectives can make providing culturally relevant services difficult.

This one (1) day training will enhance the capacity of healthcare professionals effectively to support MSM and trans women clients by introducing the framework of cultural humility.  We will describe the goals and principles of cultural humility and apply them to improve provide/client relationships and increase an understanding of the complex healthcare needs of these communities.
