The Same Only Scarier: Cancer Care and the LGBT Community

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cancer may not discriminate, but the healthcare system often does. LGBT patients with cancer face a unique impact on their identities, sexuality, and families of choice. When they believe they must choose between good medical treatment and social acceptance, many choose to hide their gender identity and sexual orientation from their providers, compromising their quality of care. On the other hand, those who feel safe bringing their whole, authentic selves into care find profound health benefits. Learn how you can address the unique issues of LGBT patients and offer suggestions for improved nursing care.
