Positive Sexuality Series | SOGI 101: Understanding Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity to Improve Patient Care

November 30 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CST

Positive Sexuality Series
The second session in MATEC-Wisconsin’s 2022-2023 Positive Sexuality Series on LGBTQ+ inclusive healthcare, SOGI 101: Understanding Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity to Improve Patient Care is a training which aids clinical and non-clinical staff in understanding sexual orientation and gender identity to support patients more effectively.

Program Description
This virtual training is designed to provide participants with both fundamental cultural competency knowledge about the spectrum of LGBTQ+ identities as well as specific language to use to demonstrate respect and inclusion with patients, families, and co-workers. An overview of definitions and terminology related to sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) will be provided to build confidence across clinic staff. The impact of stigma and discrimination on healthcare experiences and on health outcomes and disparities will be covered, particularly for people with HIV. We will also briefly cover considerations for creating a clinic environment to help patients feel welcomed and open in discussing gender and sexuality with their provider team.

Intended Audience
Physicians, PAs, nurses/NPs, social workers, behavioral health staff, pharmacists, front desk staff, and administration. Others involved in HIV/STI care and prevention are welcome to participate.

Learning Objectives
As a result of attending this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of the spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI).
  • Utilize the correct terminologies related to sexual orientation and gender identity.
  • Summarize the connection between stigma and discrimination, healthcare experiences, and health outcomes/disparities.
  • Identify actions to be taken to create a clinic space where patients feel welcomed and open in discussing gender and sexuality with their provider team.
