A first of its kind in Canada, the Trans Primary Care Guide is an innovative online interactive tool to assist healthcare providers in offering primary and transition-related care to trans and gender-diverse patients.

The Guide provides an introduction to trans care issues, addresses common fears around providing hormone therapy, and maps out guidelines and protocols for caring for trans patients. This inventive tool is based on Sherbourne’s globally-used Guidelines and Protocols for Trans Clientshandbook, which was first published in 2009 and revised in 2015. The Guide was developed in partnership with Kelly Speck, a student of the University of Toronto (U of T)’s Biomedical Communications program.
