Lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people have a number of specific health issues, yet most GPs have not received any relevant training.
Compared with heterosexual people, LGB people attending primary care services can be less satisfied with the care they receive if they face assumptions of heterosexuality, or recognise that their providers are poorly informed in this area.
This guide has been designed to assist GPs, practice nurses and practice staff to be inclusive of and sensitive to lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people.
There is also an accompanying checklist which can be used alongside the Guide to Sensitive Care for LGB People Attending General Practice for individual clinics to self-audit and highlight areas for improvement.
The guide does not specifically include transgendered women or men unless they identify as LGB.
This resource is endorsed by the RACGP.
