Asst. Professor Elliot Tebbe, PhD, LP, discusses his research in mental health and well-being in LGBTQ+ populations and the opportunity to improve quality of life it provides.
To improve health outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, nurses must challenge their own biases and advocate for their patients, as individuals and as a community.
UW staff members helped create a new textbook designed to close gaps in knowledge about LGBTQ health. Diversity Officer for the School of Nursing Mel Freitag explains why gaps still exist for LGBTQ health curriculum and how the School of Nursing’s LGBTQ+ Health Summit helps educate providers.
The School of Nursing’s first annual LGBTQ+ Health Summit aimed to educate current and future providers to provide better care for LGBTQ+ patient populations as well as to inform community members about this population’s unique healthcare needs.
