CANCELLED: 2nd Annual Wisconsin LGBTQ+ Health Summit

Madison, WI US
April 17, 2020

THIS ACTIVITY IS CANCELLED.

Due to an increase in respiratory illness and the rise of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), UW–Madison ICEP is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, AAMC, State and local Public Health, UW Health and Campus guidelines regarding our in-person accredited activities. We did consider the possibility of offering this event virtually but many of our presenters are clinicians and need to dedicate their work to the COVID-19 response.

Wisconsin LGBTQ+ Health Summit

Join us at the 2nd Annual Wisconsin LGBTQ+ Health Summit. The event kicks off with workshops and later has large group sessions, as well as concurrent sessions. 

The purpose of the summit is to educate and activate the health sciences community on LGBTQ+ health and create new pathways to serve LGBTQ+ communities by:

  • Reinvigorating LGBTQ+ -identified healthcare professionals, students and community members in finding community and support in practice, and
  • Promoting the use of up to date best practices to improve LGBTQ+ health outcomes

Practice Gap and Needs

One of the goals of Healthy People 2020 is to “Improve the health, safety, and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals.” One critical step in accomplishing this goal is to ensure that the entire healthcare team has the knowledge and skills they need to provide evidence-based, person-centered care to members of LGBTQ+ community to improve patient outcomes.

Members of the healthcare team and academics will benefit from increasing their knowledge about best practices in healthcare for LBGTQ+ individuals, their unique health factors, and how to advocate for this population. According to recent literature:

  • Over half of LGBT physicians have heard derogatory comments from other healthcare professionals and about a third have witnessed discrimination of patients who are LGBT.
  • More than a third of US medical schools in 2011 reported 0 hours of LGBT-specific content. Seven of the top ten nursing journals did not publish any articles related to LGBT issues from 2005-2009.
  • One-third to two-thirds of nursing faculty have never taught LGBT health-related topics in the previous two years.
  • Approximately three-fourths of nursing educators feel unprepared to teach LGBT content; over three-fourths had not received training in LGBT health-related topics (Bonvicini 2017).
  • Many LGBT patients would feel more comfortable with providers who are specifically trained in LGBT patient needs (AARP 2018).

Elements of Competence

This educational activity is designed to change learner competence and focuses on the following competency areas:

  • The American Board of Medical Specialties’: Medical knowledge, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice
  • Institute of Medicine: Patient-centered care, working in interdisciplinary teams, and evidence based medicine
  • Pharmacist (CAPE): Cultural sensitivity, patient advocacy, and population-based care, and
  • Nursing and Interprofessional: Values/ethics for interprofessional practice, roles/responsibilities, and interprofessional communication

Learning Objectives

As a result of this educational activity learners will be able to:
  1. Describe strategies and unique factors for serving LGBTQ+ communities.
  2. Explain best practices to advocate and improve LGBTQ+ health outcomes  
  3. Develop strategic networks by attending interactive workshops, sessions, and networking opportunities to support ongoing learning after the summit

Target Audience

This activity is designed for practitioners, faculty, staff, and students in the healthcare professions as well as community members and others interested in healthcare for LGBTQ+ populations.
