This event will be taking place on the ancestral, unceded, and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.
In this workshop, we will explore strategies for better providing gender affirming and trans-inclusive care to our young transgender, non-binary and Two-Spirit (TNB2S) clients, patients and Hep C service users. Participants will deepen their understanding of barriers TNB2S youth face in accessing healthcare and support for Hep C prevention, treatment and care, and discuss actionable solutions.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Incorporate gender affirming and trans-inclusive language and terminology in their practice and service provision.
- Identify barriers that trans, Two-spirit and non-binary youth face in accessing healthcare and/or harm reduction services at their practice and articulate strategies for reducing these barriers.
- Describe cissexism and its relationship to Hep C
- Provide accurate harm reduction information and tools to youth navigating cissexism.
In early 2019, YouthCO in collaboration with the Pacific Hep C Network will be facilitating this workshop for health care & harm reduction service providers across the province. This first facilitation of the workshop will also serve as an important opportunity for YOU to provide feedback to the project team on what we might want to adjust or focus on before the provincial roll out of this curriculum.
