Here is What You'll Learn


The Sex/Gender Diversity is a topic that continues to grow in terminology, and some of this terminology may be inclusive, derogatory or uncommon which presents a challenge to the medical interpreter. This presentation will cover an overview of the LGBTQ+ community in healthcare, the terminology and the ethical implications surrounded by cultural insensitivity and confidentiality.
