Description Reviews / Awards Clips / Trailers

Members of the transgender community face many barriers when attempting to access health care. Medical providers are not required to learn about transgender people during their schooling, so are often ill prepared to meet the medical needs of this socially and economically vulnerable population. Lack of exposure to transgender people can lead to discomfort when a provider encounters a transgender individual in healthcare settings, often resulting in a failure to successfully and sensitively meet the healthcare needs of the transgender patient. This short training video designed to give healthcare providers the opportunity to understand the needs of the transgender community. The film shows a diversity of transgender people speaking about their experiences accessing medical care with a focus on concrete advice and best practices toward improving the skills of health care providers.

Special Bonus Features include segments about Chinese Medicine, More Advice for Providers, and STD & HIV Risk.
