This module is designed for any health care provider interested in improving their practice with glbt-s people and communities. It includes anyone from health and allied health professions such as physicians, psychologists, sexologists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and support staff.

The goals of the course are to: increase awareness of the health and psycho-social issues of glbt-s people; identify ways in which practice can be transformed, and; suggest avenues for improving treatment options to these populations. By doing so, health care providers and systems can better meet the needs of glbt-s patients/clients, thereby improving the health and well-being of glbt-s people and communities.
