Historically, LGBTQIA+ individuals have been marginalized and discriminated against in American society, thus increasing their vulnerability and susceptibility of morbidity and mortality.
In this live,interactive workshop, we will:
  • Learn about the intersection between dementia and the LGBTQIA+ community, the history of the LGBTQIA+ population in America, and the impact of trauma on health outcomes of the population
  • Uncover the importance of inclusive dementia care by taking a closer look at health disparities and social determinants of health
  • Discuss stigma that many individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community face and how it may be a barrier to necessary health care.
  • Discuss implications and recommendations including trauma-informed care and proper caregiver consideration  to ensure proper dementia care for all individuals
 This workshop is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions, participate in instructor-led discussions, case vignette discussions, and a Q&A session.
Participants will leave this training with a greater understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community and the importance of high-quality dementia care.

A complete course description, including objectives, agenda, speaker bio and cancellation policy, is available on the website
