Guidelines for gender-affirming primary care with trans and non-binary patients: a quick reference guide for primary care providers (PCPs)

This quick reference guide was derived from Sherbourne’s Guidelines for Gender-Affirming Primary Care with Trans and Non-Binary Patients and is designed to be used in conjunction with the full Guidelines.

Please note that this publication predates the release of WPATH’s Standards of Care Version 8 (SOC-8) in September 2022, which includes significant updates regarding requirements for transition-related surgeries (TRS). At this time, the processes for accessing TRS via Ontario’s Ministry of Health remain based on the WPATH SOC-7 and are consistent with the information herein. The relevant updates to this publication will be made once the Ministry of Health revises their processes in accordance with the SOC-8.
