Training the Aging Network to Provide Culturally Competent Care for LGBTQ Older Adults
The Center for Consumer Engagement in Health Innovation has published an issue brief, "Training the Aging Network to Provide Culturally Competent Care for LGBTQ Older Adults."
The brief focuses on addressing barriers that impede Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) older adults from getting quality health care. It emphasizes the importance of training aging service providers on the unique needs of LGBTQ older adults in a culturally competent manner, describes SAGE's cultural competency training program, SAGECare, and includes a case study of how this training helped one large provider organization, Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY).
The Center also produced a video in collaboration with SAGE in 2017, "The Main Thing: Respect," which includes older adults in this population sharing their perspectives on this topic.
