Event Description

 Overview: Transgender people have been present in human civilization since Antiquity with varying degrees of social prominence and respect in their communities. The Native American populations respected them and treated them as gifted persons with special spiritual healing powers. In fact the American Indian considered that humans had the capacity to host "two spirits" inside them, for which they accepted the presence of"masculine" and"feminine" traits. The brutal colonization of the American continent by the European powers brought authoritarian cohorts of state and religious figures that, in those times, did not accept the existence of alternate genres; as a result, our collective conscience has been imbued by these prejudices.

Transgender people usually gradually transition into their preferred status, which is usually not well documented in the medical records and in many instances not properly attended by the medical practitioners. On top of the financial and structural barriers to equitable access of delivery services, the majority of Health Care providers lack the knowledge and expertise to treat his population. The"situated vulnerabilities" that deprive Transgender people of respect, opportunities and dignity in the Health Care system can precipitate or exacerbate depression, anxiety and even suicidal behaviour.

Why should you Attend: One of the most challenging clinical presentations in the modern medical office has been the arrival of patients whose genre identification does not correspond to their assigned sex at birth, i.e. the Transgender. Physicians, nurses, technicians, administrators and clerks are usually baffled by the special needs and consumer demands of this sizeable part of the population that has been more vocal lately to demand equity in care access.

Areas Covered in the Session:

    Discuss and understand the special care needs of the Transgender population in order to identify the barriers to their efficient access
    Discuss and understand the best clinical approaches to treat their special needs in Primary Care centers, including the gender dysphoria
    Discuss and understand the barriers to the Equality for Transgender people and how the medical community can contribute to its remedy

Who Will Benefit:

    Physicians practicing Primary Care, Family Medicine, Psychiatry, and Endocrinology
    Nursing and Technical personnel of medical centers treating transgender population
    Social Workers and Case Managers
    Healthcare government personnel that processes benefits for transgenders
    Professionals and Administrators and Ancillary Personnel of Correctional Medicine
    Members and volunteers of charity organizations that take care of transgenders
    Medical students that want to have a more holistic approach to the modern patient population
    Community activists and organizers for the transgender community
