Social and Medical Advocacy with Transgender People and Loved Ones: Recommendations for BC Clinicians

As part of the Trans Care Project, a joint initiative of the Transgender Health Program and Transcend Transgender Support & Education Society (with funding by the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition), local and international experts in transgender care worked with local members of the transgender community to create 7 sets of guidelines for health and social service providers in BC, and 17 health information booklets for transgender people and loved ones.

This document outlines recommendations for clinicians who have already taken basic transgender sensitivity/awareness training or have had experience working with transgender people, and are seeking more advanced guidance on how to effectively advocate on trans-specific issues.
