In this workshop, we will explore strategies for better providing gender affirming and trans-inclusive care to our 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.
- 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.
This workshops is made possible with the support of funding from the Provincial Health Services Authority, and the Pacific Hep C Network, AIDS Vancouver Island, and The Foundry.
