Transgender Primary Care

This course is designed for general practitioners, practice nurses and medical students to become familiar with and sensitive to the diverse terminology, experiences, health issues, standards, and referral pathways with respect to trans, gender diverse, and non-binary (TGDNB) clients. The overarching purpose is to promote more inclusive and responsive service provision for people in primary health care settings.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create an affirming and inclusive environment for trans, gender diverse, and non-binary (TGDNB) patients attending general practice and community care.
  • Understand diversity and terminology used among TGDNB people.
  • Become familiar with the current standards of care for TGDNB patients including eligibility, assessment and referral pathways for gender transition (affirmation) therapies.
  • Be aware of the key issues in hormone management and surgical options for gender affirmation
  • Be competent in providing care for common psychosocial issues among TGDNB patients.

This course is an adaptation of the original co-designed TGDNB Online Module for General Practitioners and Primary Healthcare Workers led by Dr Ruth McNair AM and Dr Cal Andrews in the Department of General Practice at the University of Melbourne.
